Kimono

Kimono This is "Kimono".
And it's called "Nagagi" too.

Put on it from below.

Kimono Put Nagagi's center line on your center of back.

Kimono Keep right and left end of neckband to same length.

Kimono Fasten right & left side of Juban's neckband & Nagagi's neckband with a clothes peg.

This step is not always necessary.
But if doing like this, steps after that will be more easy.


(Take care not to damage clothes with clothes peg. Made from plastic and having smooth surface is recommended.)

Kimono Keep Juban's neckband about 1cm inside of Nagagi's neckband.

Kimono Take clothes of 20cm from the end of neckband, and lift the bottom's cloth.

Kimono Put the right end of neckband to left side.
And wind it around your waist with pulling it to about 15cm above the floor.


(If you have great hips like oden (author), pull it more!)

Kimono Put the left end of neckband to right side.
And wind it around your waist with pulling it to about 5cm above the floor.

In fact, you have to pull out your right arm with left arm coming over.
And, hold right & left clothes together with only your left arm.
Or, you'll get a cramp in your side.


(So, we made a mistake with taking this picture! Someday, we'll take true one.)

Kimono Edge of the inside cloth is about 15cm above the floor.
Edge of the outside cloth is about 5cm above the floor.
Seam of front clothes is above the right little toe.

Kimono Bind your torso with Koshi-himo.

Adjust Ohashori's length at this step.
(Ohashori : cloth that is tucked up on waist)

If your Nagagi is long, tie Koshi-himo on your waist.
If your Nagagi is short, tie it on your lower abdomen.
Or, if your Nagagi too short to make Ohashori, wear it in "Tsuitake" way.


(How to wear in "Tsuitake" way will be uploaded in this year.)

Kimono The start is front of your body, cross on the back, and tie it at the front.

Kimono And, put tied cords into back of the cord.

Kimono Put your both hands into slits opening under sleeves called "Miyatsukuchi".

Kimono Smooth out wrinkles with side of your hands.

Kimono Do same as front.

Kimono Fix neckband.
Show about 1.5cm of Juban's neckband (Han-eri).

When your Han-eri is colorful or gorgeous, you can show it more.
But generally, showing too much white Han-eri is dowdy.

Kimono Fold up Ohashori of inside to upside diagonally, and fix neckband again.
Arrange for the crease to be not seen when it's covered with left neckband.

This step is not always necessary.
But if doing like this, you can avoid a too much swell of Ohashori.

Kimono Bind your torso with Koshi-himo.
The start is under breast (upside of waist), cross on the back, and tie it at the front.
And, put tied cords into back of the cord.

Kimono Like this.

Kimono Smooth out wrinkles of back.
Pull Ohashori down.

Kimono Pull the cloth from center to right and left.

Kimono Gather wrinkles into your side.
(Take care to keep nackband's shape.)

Cover a cloth from back's wrinkles with a cloth of front.
Like the following movie.
(It's a little exaggerated, but is a true motion.)


Smooth out wrinkles again and again with pulling back & front of Ohashori down & pulling the cloth to side.





Kimono Bind your torso with Date-jime.
The start is under breast (upside of waist / Sorry, a little higher than this photo), cross on the back, and tie it at the front.
And put tied belt into inside of cloth.


When you use "Majic Belt", refer

Kimono Back.


(In fact, you have to hold up the hem a little more (about 2-4cm) than this picture. Sorry!)

Kimono That's all.


(If you tie your Obi at more high position, tie Date-jime more high.)

Kimono (Tied the Obi)
