Yukiko’s Kimono Story (Part 4)

STORIES 着物物語
This is the first and only kimono that I bought by myself. I wanted a bold and bright polyester kimono for my work as a guide. Its really suitable for that and I wear it a lot. It is also the first time I’ve worn a ready-made kimono and it is a bit hard to put on and wear beautifully because it’s bigger than my real kimono size. I have been so lucky to have kimono tailored to my size, or my mother’s kimono, and she is the same size as me. Honestly I would really like to wear and show my beautifully dyed authentic silk kimono to foreign people when I am guiding, but I am afraid to get them dirty. I usually wear this polyester kimono or this wool kimono when I guide them.

これは唯一、そして初めて自分で買った着物です。
ポリエステル素材で明るい華やかな柄の着物が欲しくて買いました。植物園でのガイド用にとてもよく着ています。仕立て上がりの着物を買ったのは初めてで、サイズが私には大きくて着づらいです。
今までの着物は私のサイズに合わせて仕立ててもらっていたのと、母から譲られた着物は幸運なことに母と私の体型が同じでサイズがぴったりなので着やすかったのですが。。。
染めや柄が素敵で気に入っている正絹の小紋よりもこちらのポリエステルの着物と今着ているウールの着物のほうが、ガイドの時はよほど頻繁に着ています。本当は素敵な正絹の小紋を見て頂きたいし、着ないともったいないのですが仕方ありません。
