A New Acquisition

I've been spending a bit of time putting together an outfit here.

It turns out to be a very complicated thing and I am still missing a variety of parts, but I am quite happy with how things are progressing.

Today I got the underwear. The Jiban, a silk undergarment that you can see at the neck (in the very last picture).

...and the bustle which goes under the obi (sash) called an Obi Makura.

I still need a wide variety of strings and ornaments, but as I say, things are coming along.

Very nice.

two of our exchange students brought little Kimonos to our girls (they were young at the time)

I don't know what ever happened to them.
