Peach Cloud Komon and Wine Red Nagoya

I took some pictures today of an ensemble I plan on wearing for a kimono presentation that I am doing in April. I finally got this kimono to have a flatter ohashori. Because it's shorter than my proper length, it tends to get poofy. But I found a trick that really helped: you fold the inner collar, and it cuts out some of the bulk. Why I didn't know this before, I have no idea. I feel dumb now for not knowing it. The only things I hate here are that my upper center seam is not centered in the back, and the obiage tying needs work. ANYWAY, here are the pics from the aforementioned ensemble.

  1. Thank you for choosing to follow my blog! Nice pictures! Yellow and wine red look good together. It's nice you have different kinds of kimono and items. I've just started to learn, so I have one kimono from my aunt. Someday I want to buy my own one!
