My initial idea for this outfit, was to have the kimono draping down the back of the dress, but I'm disappointed that I really can't see any of the kimono in the front view of the outfit not even the sleeves. Though this could make for a kimono surprise outfit, I don't know if it shows off the kimono enough for a kimono fashion show. As a result, I attempted a version with the kimono draped down the front, and the sleeves wrapped around to the back. Which version do you like best?
Aside from that, I think I need to add some red details to this outfit to tie things together with the red lining of the uchikake. I also still need to make the lace veil for this outfit.
At the moment, I don't have access to the actual kimono that we will be using for this outfit, but I was able to try out the kitsuke with a kimono that's got similar colours on it. I'm quite pleased with the overall look I was able to achieve with the draping, but I think I will use a more festive obi musubi than otaiko for the finished outfit.
My Hungary kitsuke is coming along nicely. Unfortunately, I don't think I'm going to be able to finish the embroidery on both the left and right front panels in time for the show. The left panel isn't finished yet and I've already put about 48 hours of work into it. I'm also running way behind schedule with this year's show, so I doubt I'm going to have the time to finish the other side. I might just have to stop when the left panel is done. I also probably won't be able to embroider the tulip crests. Still, I'm really liking the overall look of the outfit right now.
Here's a little work in progress image series for my Matyo tomesode. I'm embroidering a mofuku tomesode with traditional Hungarian designs. This little piece of embroidery is about 10" by 4" and sits at the centre of the skirt, at the back of the kimono.
Today I've listed a couple of postcards and a print. I've also added a new pair of vintage zori, since the ones I posted yesterday got sold. And that's it! I'm all listed out for the Christmas season. Enjoy!
