Video: Kimono & Obi Dressing in 5 Minutes

I'm getting a little bored of the closet features and book scans already hahaha.

I found this video years ago, and was just amazed at how fast this woman can dress a mannequin in kimono and obi - and so neatly too! I've been aspiring to be able to dress as quickly and neatly :)

My favourite part about this video is that the woman demonstrates a particular obi musubi that I've found particularly difficult - tsunodashi musubi. It's a very casual musubi that should only be worn with komon (I think of it as one step down from otaiko but one step up from hanhaba) but I really like how it looks with vintage kimono and obi.

Enjoy! :)

I like the way she ties the obiage. Folding the obiage she makes a more full knot that makes it prettier.

Yes, it looks really good there! I still haven't mastered this way of tying my obiage yet hahaha

Thanks so much for that video! It really helps me with figuring out how to tie that musubi! :)

You're welcome! Yes, that's precisely the reason why I can watch this video over and over and over again hahaha ^^;
