So I’ve been wanting to try and use yukata as a dounuki. I wasn’t sure about this outfit at first, but I tried my best to mix the black and blue, and I really like the result. The obi is the chuuya that Kim gave me. I was also feeling inspired by Mokona’s Okimono Kimono where Mokona uses some modern patterns to make a kurotomesode young and fashionable. Depending on the weather, I may do something similar to this for my cousin’s wedding in October (in California). It’s surprisingly comfy, but just a little bulky. It was a little hard to dress in since the yukata was longer than the tomesode, but once you get the bottom edges even, you just do kitsuke as normal.
Whole set here.
