Vintage Silk Kimono - Vintage Japanese Kimono Robe H351
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 ivory crepe with a very traditional floral patterns such as chrysanthemum and plum mixed with bamboo leaf and water patterns. The double collar rolls to the inside.
The exterior is in good condition with just some dye transfer like you see in photos 8 & 9 and a tiny gold spot in photo 6.
Lined in two shades of pale pink/peach silk. The lining has a few tiny grey spots in the lower half and is a bit discolored where the hem dragged.
Measures 49" from sleeve tip to tip and 55.5" from back neck to the hem.
Chest is 45", hip is 45", sleeve length from shoulder seam to wrist is 12.5" and the drop from the shoulder to the bottom edge is a 19.5".
Kimono are long because in Japan they take a horizontal tuck at the waist and wrap with the obi to keep it in place.
Properly wrapped this would fit about a size 10-12-14 but you could wear it overlapped more loosely or 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.
