Yesterday was Tanabata day. The drinking party was already arranged but in order to mark the once a year meeting of two lovers Mitz and friend Takako decided to wear Yukata. This involved a lot of wrapping and tying. You can see from this page the potential number of items used. You can buy ready to wear Yukata kits (ゆかた三点セット) with the ribbons already tied and the material shortened for easy wearing, but Mitz's yukata is a Shibori ( this page cracks me up) yukata, hand made by her dear old mum.
15th July - my mistake. the yukata was one bought by mitz's mum. She made her another.
