Kaoru – Problems


PROBLEMS 困っていること
I really don’t know how to use the kimono which I’ve been given from other people which are not my size. To re-sew them to my size costs a lot, sometimes it would be cheaper just to buy a new one, that I like. There are some other ideas instead of making them my size, for example turning them into obi or parasols, but I don’t have enough courage use scissors to cut up kimono. I do not have the imagination to make other clothes from these kimono. Also I have a pile of kimono, the ones I wear a lot, that have split along the hem. Mending them costs a lot, and I have others I can wear, so they just sit there in a growing pile.
I am not satisfied with the line of the collar and chin area of my outfits. I’m trying to find a way of making it more beautiful, and for reference I watch women who wear kimono beautifully.
Also I don’t have confidence to iron kimono. I can’t put an iron on strongly, so I can’t remove the wrinkles.
I think it would be useful to have a footwear shop in the neighborhood. I can’t fix hanao by myself, so I just have to put up with it when they get too loose.
