Subject: [Puptcrit] Curtain of Light/Bunraku Performer outfits

Hello All,

Well, we are getting ready to upgrade our performers costumes.  I am
investigating several options.  One is the more traditional style
that I have seen utilized by other companies with the martial arts
style jacket and loose pants, but I know that there are many
variations on this.

I was wondering if anyone had found a base pattern on line, or if
anyone had any suggestions on standard sewing patterns that they
have found helpful in customizing their own.

I'm thinking that just a loose fitting draw string pant would
work, but don't want to reinvent the wheel if I don't have to
do a bunch of pattern work for the jackets that is already

Thanks for any input on this.
