Obiage substitutes

I've been in the flea market stores and found a range of scarfs, and thankfully it looks as though there are standards which are close to the Obiage size, one of them is even silk - what a glory.

First day of vacation ... :)

First day of vacation ... :)
There might be other important things to take care off, and I think making kimono combinations is a equal competitor ; ) 

This kimono is too small for me too wear, and I'll make it into an everyday dress, so a little nice joy in experience its possibilities as a kimono even if its is on the floor...

New Juban

Very surprisingly I found this huban on a Danish fleamarket homepage. When I searched on kimonos, I expected nothing, so when there appeared two pieces it was a bit of a surprise, what was more interesting was that this juban was wide, I felt like a lucky women.

New size for existing kimonos

New size for existing kimonos

I had these 3 kimonos, which is not big / wide enough for a woman my size, they were not lined, so it was easy to split them slightly apart and thereby increase material and make them wider, now I hope that I`ll used them.

At the same time I had a change to take a fabric sample from each, and I got some clarity what mixed fabric meant, if my skills are accurate they are all made of cellulose acetate, with for me is fine... much better than polyester ect.
