My kitsuke is considerably better than my last attempt with this kimono. It's very slick and hard to keep in place, but with some nice tight knots and a korin belt, it seems to be staying better. And it's quite funny that I bought this obi for it's orange-brown side, but the red and blue-green side is what I ended up using initially because it just looked so nice! I did take one picture with the other side. Let me know what you think!
