Vintage Silk Kimono - Vintage Japanese Kimono Robe H610
Hand stitched by kimono makers in Japan. This is a women's robe and it is fully lined. It's very pretty and drapes well. The fabric is a gorgeous pink-grey silk with hand dyed images of trees on shoulder, sleeve and hem. The collar band folds in half inward.
This robe shows very little wear. There is a tiny spot on the lower left panel, barely visible, a tiny smudge on the lower right front panel, and a spot on the lining at center
back below the hips. I did create a water spot on the right front panel near the collar band with my leaky iron (!) that may not come out in dry cleaning. See last photo.
Measures 52" from sleeve tip to tip and 58" from back neck to the hem.
Chest is 48", hip is 48", sleeve length from shoulder seam to wrist is 13" and the drop from the shoulder to the bottom edge is 18".
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 12-14-16 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.
