Geisha hikizuri kimono

I tried hikizuri kitsuke for the first time! Jenny was kind enough to let me dress her. We had a kimono theme party and we had lot of fun. A few of my kimono also found a new owner and I'm very happy about it. It is so much better to see them worn well by other people than just lying in my closet wrapped in tatoshi!
I got this geiko hikizuri for a few months ago. It is from early Showa era and the maru obi is about the same age. I think they go quite nicely together. This obi is quite difficult to tie because it's so heavy and stiff and I think I made it too wide. I also didn't have any red cloth to pass as momi so it's missing.
But I think I did quite well for my first time, also considering it was after a few glasses of wine. :)
