How to wear yukata
1. Prepare yukata slip, koshihimo, kimono belt, and datejime. These items help you to wear yukata easily. 2. Wear a yukata roughly over the shoulder on a yukata slip. Make sure to place the centerline straight along with your back lengthways, by holding both sleeve caps away from you body.
3. Hold both collar ends in front of you and check the line. Keeping your hands holding color ends, lift the yukata off the floor to adjust its length. The skirting of the yukata is worn just above the ankles. 4. Continue to hold the yukata tightly and bring the left overlap over the body and adjust its width such that its collar end runs along the right point of the collar bone. Make sure that no creases left around the hip. Open up the left overlap and bring the right overlap over the body. Bring the left overlap over the right overlap to where the width previously decided. Lower the hem to about 7-8cm from the floor.
5. Continue to hold the yukata tightly with the right hand. Take the half point of the waist sash (koshihimo sash) and place it on the center of your front body with the left hand. Cross the 'koshihimo' sash on your back and pull each end with your both hands to fix the yukata with it. 6. Bring each end of the 'koshihimo' sash in front your waist and fasten with a catch. Overlap the sash to make only one line. Insert both hands into the openings under the arm ('miyatsuguchi'). Use both hands to remove any creases around the waist on both the back and front of the body.
7. Insert 'kimono belt' from the left 'miyatsuguchi' and fasten the right collar at a little above the waistline with a catch. Fold up the creases below the fastener and sweep them away to the right side. Pull out the other end of the belt. Bring the belt from the back to the right side and fasten the left collar at the same position as the other side. 8. Adjust the distance between the collar and neck by pulling the collar ends according to your hairstyle or bodyline.
9. Place a 'datejime' band from the front around the waist. Tie 'datejime' belt on top of 'koshihimo’ sash in the same way. FINISH !
