Red Nagajuban

What to wear under kimono? Kimono underwear: Hadajuban, susoyoke, waist-towel, nagajuban, koshihimo and datejime. It’s too warm for kimono today, at least for cleaning the house and wear a kimono.

I started with my first striped kimono, phew. I have sewn kimono before, but using wide western type of fabric. It’s a cotton bolt from Ichiroya’s, very nice ( a little drab brown) but nice. The bolt is a little too short for me to make the perfect fitting kimono, but at least the sleeve […]
