Close “kasane-eri” and the kimono collar together

So, are you ready?

Start with number 36. The previous 35 is in “How to put on kimono part 2 : from straightening “ohashori” to Putting on “datejime”.

 

 

36. At the back, make sure that “haneri” and “kasane-eri” don’t come out of the kimono collar.

 

maikichi
The width of the undergarment collar is 5cm, and the width of the kimono collar folded in half is 5.5cm. 

 

 

37. Fold the right collar 1/3 inward at the “kake-eri” short line. 

 

 

38. Lay the collars so that the middle color (black) is visible about 5 mm.

 

 

39. Straighten the grain line (folded line) with your fingers sliding.

maikichi
Basically, take one finger under the ear and two fingers at the cross point as the width of “Haneri”.  You can show the “haneri” more depending on its pattern or color.

 

 

40. Slide the right hand along the collar and stop it under the bust. 

 

 

41. Take a “kimono” belt. Hold the clip of the single belt side.

 

 

42. Put into the clip from the left side hole called “miyatsuguchi”.

 

maikichi
kimono belt sizeMake the kimono belt the same length as your size. If not so, it will cause the collar to be loose or narrow. Taking the single belt side allows for minute adjustments even after clipping.

 

 

43. Clip both collars together with the kimono belt at the fourth finger. When doing this, slightly lower the “Kaneri Eri” than the kimono collar and clip both collars.

 

 

44. Move it forward horizontally. Be sure to keep the collar’s position.

 

 

45. Tuck the extra fabric up firmly.

 

maikichi

By tucking up the extra fabric from “koshihimo” without slack, the front and rear “ohashori” lines match together. See the photo 50.

 

46. View after tucking. You have a triangle on the chest.

 

maikichi
This “furisode” length is longer than my size, so I have to tuck up so much.

 

47. Return the clip to the front and temporarily clip it at the same height as the first clipping.

 

 

48. Do the same thing with the left collars as the photos of 37~40. Fold the left collar 1/3 inward at the “kake-eri” short line.

 

 

49. Straighten the grain line (folded line) with your fingers sliding. Make sure the width of the collar.

 

 

50. Clip both collars at the opposite side as same as the first clipping. Match the “ohashori” tuck lines of the front and rear. 

 

 

Adjust the “ohashori” length

If you have too long “ohashori”, shorten it by tucking up.

Here’s an example.

51. Place the center of “himo” on the center front.

 

 

52. Tie it.

 

 

53. Make sure that “ohashori” length. Basically, two hand-length from the crossed point of kimono is ideal. 

 

 

54. If you want to shorten it, tuck the top layer of “ohashori” up.

 

 

55. Hold the extra “ohashori” with the “himo”.

 

 

56. Pull out the extra “ohashori” between the first turn and the second turn of “himo”.

 

 

Wrap the “obiita” belt

When you tie a traditional “datejime”, do the same thing as “nagajuban”. Please refer to …“How to put on “nagajuban” : one piece”

 

57. Check the position of the belt.

 

 

58. Wrap the body with the belt so that the right goes over the left. Close both ends with Velcro.

 

 

59. Make sure the length of “ohashori”.

 

 

60. Clip where the “ohashori” bottom lines meet. It’s a good way to keep them in position  when turning the obi. 

 

 

maikichi

The “ohashori” length will be adjusted according to your figure. If you need it, slightly shorten the extra for a better alignment, because it is very difficult to shorten a long “ohashori” after tying obi.

 

 

61. Done!  

 

You are ready to tie “fukuro obi”!
