In the picture I'm wearing a white kimono with plum-blossoms and a golden tapestry
This kimono used to be my mother's 40 years ago and I got it resized 20 years ago.
It's one of my favorites.
Recently I don't have the chance to wear a kimono.
So I seem to keep forgetting how to properly put it on.
Or am I just getting older and forgetful?
I need extra time to prepare before changing into a kimono.
But my days are busy and tend to procrastinate. It's a lot more complicated
than putting on clothes.
The most difficult part for me would be sewing a half-collar on undergarment.
It's troublesome. Especially when I am in a hurry, I tend to sew it in the wrong order
and I have to do it over and over again.
A half-collar is a part of an undergarment.
I hear that national costume showing a part of underwear is rare.
I never thought about it.
When the collar stays crisp, it looks good. Practice makes perfect.
I have to keep that in mind.
The small pink stuff you can see in the picture is a pincushion of Carako (Chinese dolls).
I always keep it in my sewing box.
