Day 87: Yukata book

I bought this book during my first visit to Japan. It includes instructions for making yukata and accessories. I was hoping to someday try to make one but it seems unlikely to ever happen.

I do own a yukata; it was a gift from a woman I stayed with in Kyoto. This was part of our tour of mothers with young children. The yukata had been sewn by the mother when she was eighteen years old. I felt a little strange taking such a gift from someone I hardly knew; especially since she had a daughter a bit older than me. I've only worn it once to an anime convention.

  1. I'll take it unless someone who is honestly crafty speaks up T_T I would enjoy trying to make one, but I would fail 90%. If someone who could get a passing grade shows up, they are welcome to dib ahead of me.
