How to put on yukata part 2 :  from straighten “ohashori” to putting “obiita” on

Have you finished tying the “koshihimo” string?

Are you ready to the next step? Okay, get started!

 

Make sure your collar ends

1. Leave the collar end more than 3 cm on the right. 

 

maikichi
The collar end in this photo is 5 ~ 7 cm. If you have a much longer one, tie the “koshihimo” string lower. Some recycled kimonos have a long collar. It’s not quite sophisticated if it comes out too long.

 

2. Carefully pull out the collar end above the “koshihimo” string so as “shitamae” or the right lower body not to get loose.

 

maikichi
You can’t usually see inside of the left upper body, so I took it off to make it visible.

 

Straighten “ohashori” tuck

3. Put the left hand inside the right body from “miyatsuguchi”, a side slit, and put the right hand inside the left body.

 

4. Move the hands to the sides at the same time to make “ohashori” tuck line sharp.

 

5. Put the hands in the center of the back.

 

6. Move the hands from the center to both sides to make “ohashori” tuck line sharp.

 

7. Make sure how your front tuck is. If the tuck is thin, go on with 8.  If the tuck is thick, fold the extra fabric up to make it thinner. Let’s jump to 14.

 

maikichi
Before crossing the collar, if your space at the nape called “emon” is narrow, adjust it again.

 

Cross the collar

下前衿合わせ8. Basically cross the collar at the hollow of the throat. Place the collar of the right body as covering the bust.

 

Maikichi
I usually cross the collar under the hollow of the throat, because I’m not young.

 

9. Make the collar symmetry. 

 

maikichi
Left and right are always equal in kimono.

 

 

Tie a “munahimo” string to secure the collar’s position

maikichi
You don’t have to tie a “munahimo” string too firmly. Not too tight, not too loose!

 

胸紐110. Hold the right under bust very firmly. Take the center of the string with the left hand and pass it to the right hand.

 

胸紐211. Slide the string to the back and cross it on the back.

 

胸紐312. Bring it back to the front, make two loops aside and twist the ends.

 

胸紐413. Tuck them in. Okay, jump to 20!

 

 

Another way of straightening the extra fabric

maikichi
You can’t usually see inside of the left upper body, so I took it off to see well.

14. If you have the thick “ohashori” tuck , restart here. Slide the right hand along the collar and stop it under the bust, making sure the crossed point of the collar with the left finger.

 

15. ★ the blue stars are the same place as the fourth finger (no.14). Move it forward horizontally. Be sure to keep the collar’s position (★ the red star).

 

16. Fold the extra fabric completely up and make smooth above the “koshihimo” string .

 

17. When folding it up, you have a triangle on the under bust.

 

18. Align the “ohashori” tuck lines of the front and back. 

 

maikichi
When you did 16 and 17 well, you can align the front line with the back line of the “ohashori” tuck.

 

19. Go back to 10~13, tying “munahimo”.

 

 

20.  Remove wrinkles. Push the cloth around “miyatsuguchi” into inside the front body with both thumbs equally at the same time. 

 

21. Remove wrinkles in the front. Please carefully do it not to get loose the collar.

 

 

 

Tie a “datejime sash

maikichi
When tying the sash, it may be comfortable for you to inhale, stop, tie the sash, and exhale. Let’s try!

 

22. Take the center of “datejime” sash, and slide it down along the bust.

 

23. Cross it at the back. Lower one side. 

 

24. fold it up.

 

25. Bring the ends to the front. Make two loops and twist them.

 

26. Tuck them in one by one, holding the twisted loops.

 

27. If you have a long “ohashori” tuck, shorten it and put it into the “datejime” sash. Make a sharp line around the hip.

 

28. Make sure the seam lines on the “ohashori” tuck and “okumi” lines are connected. Let’s see the circle. Clip there to keep the line of the “ohashori” tuck sharp.

 

 

Put a “obiita” board on 

29. Put a “obiita” board with a belt on the “datejime” sash.

 

maikichi
Basically the length of the “ohashori” tuck is less than one index finger. See the blue arrow.

 

30. If you have a simple obiita board, clip it on the front.

Hey, good job ladies!

Now, you are ready to tie “hanhaba-obi”, a half-sized obi.
