- Sweet Persimmon
This is a lovely persimmon themed hikizuri that I bought on YJA. It was originally in disrepair with the bottoms of the sleeves coming undone, and one layer of padding missing around the hem. I replaced the padding and fixed the sleeves and now it's ready to wear again!
For the kitsuke photos, I attempted to dress it with my dragon hikinuki obi, but I need more practice tying that type of obi since the extra twist required to get the pattern right side up on the otaiko knot always gets me turned around.

Eventually this kimono will be put up for sale in my Etsy shop - though likely not until June. For now, I'm holding onto it in case I decide to use it for the 2014 Anime North Kimono Display.
