Trad kimono collar is not like that at all - the stand part of the collar is not a fold, it is a seamline. There is a slight setback at the back neck, but the whole trick is the way you sew the straight collar band around the near rightangle formed where front and back pieces join. It is very difficult to do by machine.
This site shows a straight collar being sewn on to a toddler's cotton yukata kimono. http://blog.goo.ne.jp/koko-natu/e/45adf6b56b04d4ce9a05120ec4b25639

Dotmall, thank you (glad for google translate). I wonder if a bias band, instead of straight grain, for just the back collar piece would work. I sure wish Curves, or PMB, had a pattern as I'm not very good at drawing a pattern. I loved this website. Lots of good info.
