National Cherry Blossom Festival [07 Feb 2008|12:20pm]
octogirlie
I am thinking about attending the National Cherry Blossom Festival in D.C. this year. Is there an "unofficial" gathering of kimono wearers and enthusiasts that coincides with this event?

x-posted quite a bit, sorry!

I found this site through a search on Google, and their prices seem to be too good to be true. Are they a reputable company? Has anyone bought anything from them?

x-posted a few places, sorry for any repeats

Kariginu/sokutai [26 Jul 2007|10:53am]

_kasuri_
Hey all, new member. I joined because I'm trying my darndest to find patterns for kariginu- if any of you have seen Onmyouji (1 or 2) you'll remember the kind of cut sleeve heian style kimono that Abe no Seimei wears around.

For those of you who may not remember/know what I'm talking about-


I have found a lot of sites that delineate how it is worn, what exactly it looks like, and even someone who made one entirely from scratch just by looking at pictures. However, I have not that skill, and am looking specifically for patterns.

Any help? Many thanks.
