From Wikipedia Japan "How to cut cloth 36 cm width for kimono"- http://bit.ly/pVCDUd
The length is vary with your height.

If you need measurements, then we need sizes : ) A 'standard' kimono isn't going to fit my 180 cm frame... Go down to the local fabric store and get a pattern in your size.

(answering orangeboard)

A kimono (or anything else) that fits my 5'2" wife is going to look ridiculous on my 6' body.

What style of kimono-short jacket style, longer, imperial court with train?

"get a pattern in your size"
