Kimono


In Kilbirnie there's a tiny, tiny junk shop crammed full of Japanese stuff, rolls of kimono fabric, offcuts, used kimono and obi of a variety of vintages. I was hoping for an offcut or a roll of something interesting, without too much pattern to match. Instead, after looking at probably every single piece in the place, I ended up with this kimono which I am going to recycle. More about that tomorrow...

In other news, I now own a modem/wireless router, and have just spent the last several hours trying to persuade it to play nicely with everything else. Apparently I succeeded, but don't ask me how...

As kimono go, that one looks like wizards robes actually...

Pretty! Now I'm wondering what you'll do with it.

Some of it's going into the corset, but there's going to be quite a lot left over. Got any ideas?

My own odd series of thoughts:

Based on the sleeves, yup, a woman's kimono.
I like the paper/cardstock geodetic constructs!
INteresting Pillows.

I've a few old kimono around here I should either recycle or re-sew.

Heh. Both the modular origami and the cushions have featured in earlier photos.

I was tempted, but it was a bit small, and I am frankly just the wrong shape for kimono.

Wear it open, over something else?
