Amazing, vintage, hand stitched, short kimono in very good condition. The fabric is probably silk, but there are no labels to confirm. The floral design is in dark green and browns with a black background. Traditional kimono styling with rectangular split sleeves and an open front. So versatile and easy to wear.
Half lined with pretty hand painted silk.
Approx UK size S/8-10
In excellent condition, handmade. No snags, marks or tears to the fabric. A couple of small faint marks to the lining- not major at all.

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.
