These are the first pair of Hakama I've made. I did these when I was staying with the Lastwear crew up in Seattle. They've got cargo pockets, loops for keys, et cetera.

One of this moments when you see that "your" Ideas are already produced by somebody else :D
But i have really to say that i'm really impressed by your creations. I wish i would have the sewing patterns to change them into my size and produce them for me.
By the way, do you have an profession (tailor,Garment Engineer)? Looks very good crafted!

Hello! Sorry for the late response. If you google "Lastwear hakama pattern" you'll see several results of what the pattern looks like and the steps of construction. There used to be all the documents in one place online, but now you have to hunt for them.

Hi!
I saw these recently, and REALLY loved the idea and the execution (both in the pattern's design and your skill at making it). However, when I followed your advice below, I was saddened to discover that Lastwear has jumped ship, took all their patterns down, and gone home. This was VERY disappointing! I was able to find part of the pattern and instructions, but not all of them.

Would you be willing to share them with me? Supposedly they are still open-source licensed...

Hello! There is an old Brass-Goggles forum post I always point people to who are looking to reproduce these hakama. 

brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index…

You'll notice the first couple pages are missing I'm in ur post! Shakin mah fish!  but the gist of it is is just hemming the front and back 1st, then sewing the pleats. Then you go onto attaching the pockets to the front (+bamboo folds) and sewing the bamboo folds on the back, joining front and backs together along the center front/back (CF/CB). Then the waist bands (WB) are put on. You have instructions for the front WB but the back WB is put on just the same, with the interior layer sewn on first, the stiffener inserted and the exterior layer topstitched down. then the back belt loop is attached and all the topstitching is done. If you're going to use those narrow ties in back, like illustrated on the front WB construction, then they're inserted when you do the first round of top stitching, after sewing the back WB onto the back waistline.

Something else that's omitted is a fly opening. That was just a couple rectangles to make a facing for the opening and then a flap to cover both. What I like to do is something more like a jeans zipper fly, or button fly as it's cleaner. Also, when the front and back are sewn together at the side seam (one of the last steps) They're reinforced at the bottom of the pocket with a rectangle or patch that's been sewn on to conceal the raw edge at the top.
