Buy the 112 Japanese Field Clothing sewing pattern from Folkwear. Patterns and sewing instructions are included for three versatile and comfortable garments: the Hippari Jacket (sized for men and women), Monpei Field Pants (sized for women), and Padded Jacket (sized for women). All are constructed in the time-honoured 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 included: for women, a rectangular sleeve with small traditional openings under the arms in both the sleeve and body; for men, the sleeves are tapered, with no underarm opening.

The calf-length Monpei 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. The 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.
