I am just curious about a piece of fabric that comes with the Shi kimono. I bought it from M.D. Not sure what it is used for. It is a piece of fabric about 11"x4" The fabric has the same print as the obi (waist belt) Maybe it's another obi that is tied instead of using the velcro one with the flower? As far as I know, on real kimonos, the obi is tied in the back. Of course, this isn't a traditional kimono but more of a sexy one. I decided to just wrap the fabric around one of my figures and attach the velcro obi. It doesn't look to bad. Sort of looks like a yukata. The first pic. is the kimono. The rest is the piece of fabric wrapped.
