This women’s cotton yukata kimono has lovely cherry blossom motif design all over in browny bordeaux. It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel). Sing a Song is a charming piece.

This kimono is slightly starched. Traditionally Japanese people like cotton kimono to be starched because of the crispy fresh feeling in very hot summer weather. The kimono will soften after a couple of gentle hand pressed washes in cold water.

This kimono is quite long and large. Please check the measurements. You may need to have a bit of tuck at your waist with this length of kimono unless you are very tall. You can adjust the length by using a koshihimo (a cord tied around the waist of a womans kimono to hold it in place). Koshihimo is available for £4. Please ask for more details.

Or you could make a belt from cutting about 20 cm off the bottom of the kimono and sewing it. I sometimes do this for modern cotton kimonos because they usually come with a long length. They are long because Japanese people tuck the kimono in around their waist when they wear kimonos.

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.
