Birthday Kimono

This is Ivy in her birthday kimono. I used this book

I think she is trying to look "fancy" here

This is the back

The pink vest type thing is called a hifu. It's sometimes padded and worn as an extra layer of warmth. They can be worn by anyone, but now it seems to be traditionally worn by young girls--maybe to eliminate an elaborate obi?

Here she is at her party, as a Japanese cowboy.

What a **beautiful** kimono! I especially like Ivy's "fancy" pose! Happy birthday!
