Mitsuyo’s Kimono Story (Part 2)

STORY 2 着物物語 2
This omeshi is the first kimono I bought myself. It is Nishijin omeshi. It was when I was in my 40s, and I went to free kimono lesson course. Until then I just wore kimono my own way, I had not had lessons because my mother taught me. They made a kind of study group and take you to see the kimono being woven. I wear it out and about and it is very versatile. It is almost 20 years old, but it still looks new. I actually have my sleeves cut a little longer than the standard size. I didn’t realize it until I bought a ready made kimono, and found that my nagajuban didn’t fit it properly. I like the longer sleeves.
