Patterned Obi - お太鼓柄

This week at Kimono school I learned how to tie a patterned Obi - so that the pattern lines up with the center of the back (and front). It is amazing how precise the body measurements can be. The key to getting this pattern in the right place is using the finger-to-thumb measurement, which in turn is about one quarter of your waist measurement, to pre-measure the pattern placement, before you put the obi on.
