Jue’s Corset Belt, which she made using my free corset belt pattern
“I’ve always wanted a better belt to wear with my kimonos. I often hang out around the house in my kimonos when the kids are sleeping, with no special occasion to celebrate.[…] Anyways, you are suppose to wear an obi with your kimonos. However, tying an obi around your body without it falling off a few hours later is quite an art. Though I like the look of an obi, I’ve always thought it would be good to substitute it with a belt with boning. So after my recent discovery of, I made a corset belt with the free pattern. […] As you can see, it gives some curve to a usually flat kimono outfit It looks very… the west meets the east!”
