Nodoka’s Story 1

Soon after I started wearing kimono I decided that I wanted a wool tartan check, and my mother made this one for me. I had some coats in tartan check, but they were fairly dull and I wanted something brighter. However, if I had it made completely in red, it would be too much, so I had it made half and half, (katami gawari). I wear it with a leopard skin design obi, also made by my mother. I wore it with a cloak, Sherlock Holmes style, for a fashion show.

着物を着始めて間もない頃、ウ-ルのタータンチェックの着物が欲しくなり、母にこれを縫ってもらいました。いくつかタータンチェックのコートも持っていましたがいくぶん地味で、もっと明るいものが欲しかったのですが、全部赤にすると派手すぎると思い、片身替わりにしました。ヒョウ柄の帯と合わせて着ています。帯も母の手作りです。この上にマントをまとって、シャーロックホームズとしてファッションショーに出ました。
