How to put on kimono : next steps
Make sure both ends of the collar
30. Check if the left end of the collar is firmly held by the the “koshihimo”.
31. Pull out the right end of the collar above ” koshihimo” so as not to get the lower skirt part loose.
Straighten the “ohashori” tuck
32. Put the hands inside the center of the back.
33. Slide the hands from the center to each side to make the tuck line sharp.
34. Put the left hand inside the right part from “miyatsuguchi”, an opening , and put the right hand inside the left part.
35. Slide the hands aside at the same time to make “ohashori” tuck line sharp.
Close the collar
36. At the center of the back, make sure that “haneri” does not come out from the kimono.
37. Fold the right collar 1/3 inside at the “kake-eri” short line and straighten the grain line (folded line) with your fingers sliding.
38. Adjust the width of the “haneri” collar. Basically, take the width of one finger under your ear and the width of two fingers at the intersection of the collar.
39. Slide the right hand along the collar and stop it under the breast.
40. Take a “kimono” belt. Hold the clip of the single layer side. If so, you can make fine adjustments even after attaching.
41. Insert the clip from “miyatsuguchi” or a side hole as shown in the small photo, and attach the clip at the position of the little finger. (★ in photo 39).
42. Move it forward horizontally. Be sure to keep the collar’s position.
43. Tuck up all extra fabric neatly and make a triangle at the front.
By tucking up the extra fabric from “koshihimo” without slack, the front and rear “ohashori” lines match completely. See the photo 53.
44. View after tucking. You have a triangle on the chest.
45. Bring the other clip to the front and temporarily attach it at the same height as the first clip.
46. Adjust the collar of the left side. Fold it 1/3 inside at the “kake-eri” short line and straighten the grain line with your fingers sliding. Make sure the width of the “haneri” collar. See the photo 38.
Depending on the type of kimono, color, embroidery or pattern, change the visible width of “haneri”.
47. Take off the clip attached temporarily and attach it again at the correct position.
48. Remove wrinkles on the back. Push the back bodice at “miyatsuguchi” into the front bodice with both thumbs at the same time.
49. Match the front and rear “ohashori” tuck lines on the right side.
Wrap the “datejime” belt
50. Slide down the belt from the upper part of the chest to under the breast.
51. Wrap the belt, slightly stretch and close it.
52. Check the “ohashori” length. Basically, two hand spans from the cross point of kimono is good.
53. If you have long “ohashori”, tuck it into the “datejime” and shorten it.
54. Make sure that the seams on the “ohashori” tuck are connected to the seam on the “Okumi”, and also make sure the the length of the “ohashori”. See the white arrow.
If your “ohashori” is long, it should be shortened at this step. Tuck it in the “datejime” a lttle to be short. After tying “obi”, you can adjust the “ohashori” length by pulling out a little.
