I dressed the lady who initiated this project in one of my kimono, obi, and accessories while the others watched and asked a lot of questions. I demonstrated the two most basic hanhaba obi musubi (bunko and kai no kuchi) then they dressed themselves in yukata I brought with me. One lady had her own yukata and hakata obi but it might have been a summer kimono. It was difficult to tell! The ladies were really appreciative and I hope they had as much fun as I did. It was a truly nice experience and we all had a great time playing with kimono.
