This is a big girl's kinsha (fine crepe) silk kimono which has a soft and smooth touch in good quality silk with enchanting kiku (chrysanthemum), ume (plum) and botan (peony) design in pretty pink. It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel) and a beautiful classic floral jacquard design. I love the design and colour of the kimono. It's definitely one of my favourites.

It would be stunning to wear to display as a decorative piece for a room. Wonderland is such a charming and attractive antique piece.
As you can see the measurements on the website, it isn't a very big kimono. I'm usually a UK size 8. The kimono only just closes at the front on me. The sleeves are a little bit short but I don't think you need to worry about that much. It makes lovely very lightweight silk jacket for women.

It has stains and certain wear but even so it is such a fabulous antique piece. Please check the detail photos and the 'Extra Images'.

Note: This kimono does not come with a belt. If you would like one, please check my casual obi collection on casual-obi-belt.html. Prices start from £7 or £8 for a belt.
