Yukiko’s Story 2

I sewed this yukata by myself two years ago. I learned wasai (kimono making) twice. The first time was just after I graduated university. At that time, I thought I was not good at wasai and I avoided it since. Later I restarted wasai in my early 30’s. When I finished this yukata, I was very happy. I was not good at sitting still and concentrating during all the hours of sewing, but I became able to do it now. This yukata is the result of my overcoming my weakness. I liked this pattern at first glance. I love this now and also I can also wear it when I get old.

この浴衣は2年前に自分で仕立てたものです。和裁は2回習いました。最初は大学を卒業してすぐでしたが、そのときは私には和裁は向いていないと思い、敬遠していました。その後30代になって再び習う事になり、この浴衣を仕上げる事ができたときとても嬉しかったです。以前よりじっと座って縫うことも平気になりました。苦手意識を克服できた思い出深い浴衣です。反物を見て一目惚れしました。今も気に入っていますし、おばあさんになっても着られると思います。
