Vintage Navy Blue Shibori Dyed Silk Kimono - Vintage Japanese Kimono Robe H912
Hand stitched by kimono makers in Japan. This is a women's robe and it is fully lined. It's smooth navy blue silk jacquard, flowing and in very good condition.
The fabric is resist dyed silk with areas of shibori dyeing and surface printed floral patterns.
In excellent condition with just a small stain on the lower back lining (see last 2 photos).
The collar is made from the same fabric but there is also a decorative orange brocade second collar that you can clip off if you don't want.
The lining is an ivory silk with a navy blue shaded border.
Measures 52" from sleeve tip to tip and 60" from back neck to the hem.
Chest is 48", hip is 48", sleeve length from shoulder seam to wrist is 12.5" and the drop from the shoulder to the bottom edge is 19.25".
Kimono are very long because in Japan they take a horizontal tuck at the waist and wrap the fabric with the obi to keep it in place.
Properly wrapped this would fit about a size 14-16-18 but you could wear it overlapped more loosely or completely open over pants.
You can also display this backwards on the wall with a rod and open the bottom in a fan shape to get a full view.
