Mika’s Kimono Story (Part 2)


STORY 2 着物物語2
This all over design casual (komon) kimono was made for my 7,5,3. I don’t know why I had a komon instead of a formal kimono, but anyway, it was made for me when I was seven. It was originally white with a bright orange design on it. Then when I was older, I had it re-dyed in this grey colour. Then it was re-sewn to my adult size and I wore it with a hakama for my university graduation. That is an amazing thing about kimono; I wore it at seven, but I can still wear it as an adult. This kimono has a lot of memories for me because I wore it at those ceremonies.
