Miki’s Kimono Stories (Parts 3&4)

STORY 3&4 物語3&4
This kimono belonged to a sister of my mother’s father. It went to my mother when she was young. I think it was made in the Taisho period. My grand aunt wore it when she was going out. I noticed the tacking on this kimono when I got it from my mother. It had been kept like that for safe keeping. My grand aunt hoped to give it to her daughter, but finally it came me through my mother.

This brown kimono that I am wearing was made by my mother for herself originally. I liked this when I saw it when I was going out with her. Is it called a botanical pattern? It is not too dull though in spite of the brown color, it looks like a dress. My kimono size is almost same as my mother’s. This kimono is my favorite from my mother’s collection.

この着物は母の父の妹の着物です。母が若い頃譲られたそうで実家にありました。おそらく大正時代の物だと思います。大叔母のお出かけ着でした。先日この着物が私のところに来たとき、しつけ糸がついていました。大切に保管していたのだなと思いました。大叔母は娘に着て欲しくて大切に保管していたようですが譲り渡すタイミングを逃し、私の母が譲り受け、今は私の手元にあります。
今着ている茶色の着物は母が自分用に仕立てた着物です。母と外出したときに母がこれを着ていて可愛かったのでもらいました。ボタニカル柄というのでしょうか?茶色なのに地味ではなく、ワンピースみたいな感じがして気に入っています。着物のサイズは母とほとんど同じなのでもらったらそのまま着られます。母の着物のなかではこれが一番気に入っています
