Japanese Field Clothing by Folkwear

Patterns and sewing instructions are included for three versatile and comfortable garments – the Hippari, sized for men and women; Monpei, or field pants, for women; and Padded Jacket for women.  All are constructed in the time-honored way.

The Hippari is a hip-length jacket that overlaps in front and ties at the side.  Its front opening is finished with a neckband. Two different elbow-length sleeves are given:  for women, a rectangular sleeve with small traditional openings under the arms in both sleeve and body; for men, sleeves are tapered, with no underarm opening.

The calf-length Field Pants have pleats at the waist below back and front waistbands that wrap and tie.  Roomy gussets at the crotch allow full ease of movement; leg hems are finished with elastic.  There is a patch pocket on the right front hip.

The Padded Jacket has a straight front opening and neckband.  Construction includes an outer layer, batting, and a short contrasting lining.  The curved sleeves (which can also be used, unpadded, on the Hippari), have traditional underarm openings.
