Description

This beautiful vintage woman’s kimono features a design of orchids and other flowers and leaves in shaded brown and white with gold metallic highlights and couched gold thread outlines.  White silk lining. A couple tiny spots of discoloration may be apparent on the white designs and a couple on the lining.  One ink stain (shown in photos) is on the bottom left.

Approximate dimensions:

Sleeve hang length is 41”, kimono is 50” wide from wrist to wrist, and is 62“ long from shoulder to hem, width of the back is 24”.


Size differences in kimono are minimal, and are actually one-size-fits-all garments that fit an American size 2-12.  Kimono are surprisingly long because they were cut so that Japanese women could pull them up at the waist to the precise length needed, and bind them in place with an obi. 

There are many non-traditional ways for Westerners to wear kimono. They can be bloused and worn with a chain belt or sash. They can be worn open, as dusters or luxurious evening coats. Some pieces can be shortened if desired, depending upon their design.  If you wish to learn how to wear kimono in the traditional way, please see The Book of Kimono, by Noria Yamanaka for complete instructions.
