Just gorgeous! I love the combination of fabrics and colours.

Hey, did I ever tell you that I used to be in a Japanese Court Dancing company in Boston? Our Sensei had been a member of the Imperial Household of Music and Dance, Suinobu Togi. We did traditional Bugaku and had a Gagaku orchestra accompany us. :-) One year I took on the challenge of making 15 traditional Gagaku orchestra costumes. :-P

Those tabi socks bring back memories! Ours were traditional white but I can imagine our director would have loved some gorgeous ones like that for the modern work we did. Look at the beautiful hemming of the kimono. Ahhhh....
