Experience Kimono Outfit
Using a white fabric and a string and be covered by layers and layers, it looks like a very complicated method of dressing. But under the dressing technique of the experienced professional teacher, the gorgeous dressing ritual is completed in a short time. The use of a butterfly bow tied around the back of the waistband adds a lovely touch to the kimono.
