Hikizuri!

My very first genuine Hikizuri from Japan arrived today! It is a trailing kimono for the sorts of dances Maiko and Geiko perform. I have had one that i made longer for performance but always wondered what the actual thing looked like…

It’s a modest light blue with pretty Sensu (fans) all over it. I shall wear it out tomorrow into town with my Katsura wig and ‘ricecake’ Kanzashi.
