Amazing, vintage, hand stitched, full length kimono in very good condition. The fabric is light weight however there are no labels to confirm type. The floral design is in dark red and green with black outlines on a mulberry (pinkish purple) background. Traditional kimono styling with rectangular split sleeves and an open front. So versatile and easy to wear. Fully lined.
Approx UK size M/12-14
In excellent condition, handmade. No snags, marks or tears to the fabric but does have a few tiny holes to the lining – not a major issue though. Looks unworn- still retains masking stitches.

Japanese clothing is usually of adjustable fit, being mostly wrap-over or tie-to-fit items, so most garments fit a range of sizes. Measure from centre back of neck, along shoulder and down the arm to the wrist, then double that and compare it with the sleeve end measurement to judge sleeve length.
