Vintage Silk Kimono - Women's Vintage Japanese Kimono Robe H823D
Hand stitched by kimono makers in Japan. This is a women's robe and it is fully lined. It's soft and drapes well.
The fabric is silk crepe in such a dark purple-maroon that it almost appears black. It has pink lines to suggest waves and rows of perky flowers.
The collar band folds in half inward.
This robe shows very little wear. The outside looks great, considering its age.
The upper lining is white polyester, which has some light spots. The lower lining is pink polyester and it is slightly discolored at the hem from dragging in a few spots.
Measures 52" from sleeve tip to tip and 61.5" from back neck to the hem.
Chest is 46", hip is 46", 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.
