The sleeves have the most staining and dirt. I feel so sad that it is so dirty, I would love to wear it. I always considered peony to be my favorite kimono motif, but this year I seem to be drawn to kiku motif, maybe because it reminds me of the kimono I wore to the most exciting kimono event I've been to, Kimono Jack Seattle.
There wasn't a name for this musubi in the book I used, and I'm not a fan of how it came out. Its basically an otaiko musubi, with "wings" underneath the drum. I don't think my fukuro obi has the right stiffness to pull off this musubi.
This musubi is called Kaei, 「花影」.
The shape is actually rather pretty, but it doesn't work well with the large pattern of the obi.
Hana-kouken, 「花後見」, this musubi is very lovely! I want to try doing this musubi on myself!
