Aren't these some interesting takes on Kimonos?

 

I often make a kimono t shirt from PMK. One of my favs.

They look fun! If you are busty, you will be happy to know that traditionally made kimono have an answer to that problem - the diagram in the link shows that the sideseam is left open from the underarm down to about bustpoint level. The sleeve drop is also left open for most or all of its length, to allow for movement. You can also use the sleeve as a pocket - the openings are shown here

Instructions for order of sewing for jinbei (kimono wrap top plus shorts) (in Japanese sorry) given on this site....scroll down to where you start to see the yellow garment pieces. Buttons for following pages are below that. The collar instructions are handy, because it can be tricky - basically keep the collar straight, don't try to ease the body and collar together, just act as if you are sewing two straight pieces together. That way, the collar stands up nicely when finished.

Of course, if the pattern is loose enough you don't need the openings - that's how padded outer jackets are made.

When you wear a kimono, can you make sure that you wrap the right side first toward your heart and then the left side goes over. I grew up in Japan and that is the custom way of wearing a kimono. There is only 1 exception to the rule.
