This is probably one of the best tutorials I could have found. It made it so much easier to draw one.  I was struggling so much!

Thank you!!

Wow. Me and MASA Works DESIGN draw really similar kimonoes. (A.K.A our kimonoes disobey almost all these rules.)

About the obi. It depends on which era you want to draw the kimono for. The high obi is only started in the Edo era. Waist-low obi is fine for previous eras, like Sengoku or Heian.

So...If I'm drawing a ghost girl, the right side of the yukata would be on top, right?
