Some details about gard
- First, yes Ii (wish I knew how to pronounce your name) your comment about
Obi was useful, at least I know I can't be completely wrong :-)
Next a few details:
-I made a white kosode, knee length, for the under layer. Should it have
some sort of closing like buttons or laces or is it held in place only by
stuffing the bottom in the hakama? Had a hard time making the collar, I
probably will have to redo it but time is closing on me :-), my first even
as Japanese is May 15...
-I made a similar over piece that is ankle length (is it also name kosode
?). I have seen pictures of these with a kind of ruban at the end of
sleeves like here:
How do you make these ? Do you make slots like button holes to pass the
ruban through ? Is the long, short, long segment pattern a standard ? Is
this ruban only decorative or is it used to "close" the sleeve for some
reason ? Is the ruban sew or just pass through ?
-Also on the center picture here:
The white closing cord, how is it done, what king of knot is use to close it
? The two point where it attach to the garb, could these be the kamon
Last, about kamon, If I want to paint them on this outer garb, where should
I paint them (back of shoulder ?) ,how big ?
Many thanks for your helping me putting the final tough on these, If there
is interest I might post pics of the final result...
