Time to depart from the traditional way of wearing a kimono and try something different.
As my wedding is only 5 months away I have been pondering on what my wedding will look like because I have ordered a Victorian inspired gown. Then it got me thinking, how can I make my kimono more Victorian?
Rather then creating the usual oshashori just under the obi, I decided to use the full length of the kimono. However to create the Victorian look I utilised the excess length to create the tail end.
Of course this arrange would show-off your juban but I didn't want that look so I added my simple black drawstring skirt to preserve some modesty that a Victorian lady should have.
At the time, the only thing going through my head was to tie a fan-inspired musubi but what made me tie this I have no idea.
It is a little bit unstable but with an extra koshihimo it will be fine.
I think with a little bit of skirt support like a bustle, I think this look could be really something.
Obi - Black ro nagoya obi
Skirt - Homemade long drawstring satin skirt.
