With me, I just scoured the internet looking for tutorials on how to make doll clothing. It was this way that I found a tutorial on how to make a kimono and a hakama. A bit of practice with paper helps a lot too. I made two paper kimono's and found the best sizes for one of my figures and is now ready to sew it together.
Gentlemen do prefer blonde's.

Well, I found a few tutorials online that are somewhat helpful.

But still, I would really like some advice and tips for actually sewing clothes from the BSW members who have been sewing their own Shinki clothes for quite some time. I would really like to know the precise measurements of each Shinki, what settings I need to use on a sewing machine, etc.

I was hoping people were getting back to you on this in PM, but looks like that's not happening.

I know rytearik was making/selling Shinki outfits earlier, have you tried emailing/PMing her?

Nope, I haven't. Besides, I really don't want to bother her.

Once more, can one of the mods delete this thread? I've lost all interest learning to sew my own Shinki clothes since nobody's bothering to help me get started.
