Do you think you need all those seams? I have a similar pattern but it is only 7 pieces. Front, back, crotch, back tie and 2 pieces for the front tie.

The seams are mostly based on recreating widths based on Japanese fabrics...so if you want them to look period correct, you need to cut the panels in those type of pieces, because if they were being made of real Japanese fabric, they would have those seams. Real traditional Japanese fabrics are usually only around 14 inches wide.

You can fake it some by doing a tiny seam in a wider piece of cloth at the proper point. But if you want them to look like real Japanese period clothes, you need those seams. Not sure if it affects the hang of the garment, but it might.

I've seen in use and they actually seem to be "poofier" and hang a little better hakama made with other patterns. The tiny seam method works if the original cloth is thicker.
