This women’s royal blue indigo hand-stitched yukata cotton kimono has enchanting ayame (iris) flower, water stream and Hanabishi (patterned design of diamond-shaped flowers) which are very summery and refreshing. It has a bachi-eri (folded lapel) and the kimono is very well made. Iris Garden is a beautiful attractive vintage piece.
The kimono is quite long. Please check the measurement. 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 off the bottom of the kimono and sewing it. They are long because Japanese people tuck the kimono in around their waist when they wear kimonos.
It has certain wear and a mark on the front left bottom, but except for that as a whole it is in a good condition for the age. Please check the detail photos and '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 £8 or £10 for a belt.
