  1. Oh Connie! That is absolutely beautiful!~ What a treasure. This is a very fine kimono. Not the usual tomesode for married women. Very special. I like the contrast between the body color and the obi. Almost startling. Beautiful.

    Hugs, Jane

  2. Thank you Jane. When my husband came home from the army, that evening I put the kimono on thinking I would look sexy. Well this kimono was not made for snuggling, quickly, he begged me to take it off. (Although the lining is satin the outer fabric embroidery threads are very prickly. It still hangs in my closet and the obi sash in the drawer.
