Product details

She was stunning! My daughter wore a beautiful red, silk Japanese Furisode Kimono. It had lots of leaves and floral designs and golden threads throughout. Since then, I’ve had kimono fever. But, I’m a busty babe. My curvy figure is just not the column body type for which kimonos were created. The only way to make me into a column is to strap puffy pillows and towels under the “girls” to even me out, or gasp, duct tape them down. Hell, shaping would be easier if I stole a barrel off a rodeo clown and used that under the kimono. Given my new hobby—hot flashing—the barrel would be a lot cooler too. Yah, not doing that. It occurred to me that not everybody can wear a kimono, but every woman can wear a shawl and look good. This elegant shawl features a kimono lace made up of simple mesh and leaves. It invokes the graceful beauty of a kimono without the complication of trying to wear one. Knit from one edge to the other, the construction is effortless and easy to remember.
