Can you dress yourself - 着付け、できますか?

I had a chance to meet up with friends today and for some, it was their first time to see me in kimono. And every one of them asked me "can you dress yourself?" After two months at kimono school - yes, I can dress myself. And in a very short time, I have been able to get my dressing time down to about half an hour. It turned out looking in the mirror was slowing me down. Kimono school has only two small stand-up mirrors, and you only get to see when you are done. This means I get dressed by feel. Fingers at my collar, certain pieces lined up with certain areas of the body.


And I'm still finding it very comfortable. Especially as the weather improves! This week the weather got warm enough I didn't even need a wrap!
