Ohhh, so envious, I love this costume - I own the book Okimonokimono too, there's some other gorgeous kimono designs in there based on Clamp works :D Maybe I'll make one someday :'D

All done~

99% done now but I'm gonna be away and won't have my camera!

Just need to trim the excess white off the collar/sleeves and iron it ^^

It begins :D

Actually been pretty excited to do this commission, it makes a change from the stuff I usually get, I love getting a chance to make a nice kimono and obi :3 I'd love to make them more often, this is also a cosplay I'd like to make for myself at some point, so I'll no doubt redo it in the future!

So yeah, in the last 24 hours (literally) I have bought all the fabric, cut out all the green obi pieces, cut out all the obi interfacing, cut out all the white kimono pieces, painted the tips of the tassles and made 40 flowers (which is probably half the amount of flowers I'll actually need)
Pretty pleased, I think I'm getting better at working faster :3 definitely now that uni's done for the summer!
