This is a gorgeous unused cotton kimono that I believe dates to the 1960s. This cotton kimono still has its belt sewn into the interior pocket of the sleeve - this is how they would be sold and the owner would remove the belt when ready to use the kimono (see last close-up photo of belt). The cotton is printed in a black and gold floral pattern against a red background.. The label reads “100% Cotton Size: L Made in Japan”.
Sizing: Although this cotton kimono should fit a large size, please rely on the following exterior measurements for fit, taking the style of the kimono into account (compare measurements with a similar kimono that you presently own or to your own body measurements, taking the cut of the garment into account):
Shoulders: 50” across the top including the sleeve tops
Sleeves: 13” long from shoulder/sleeve seam
Bust: 50” around, taken under the arms, with a normal overlap
Waist: Meant to be cinched with the sash belt
Overall length: 58”, measured flat
Condition: This kimono is unused and is very crisp.
This is a gorgeous cotton kimono - really striking, very unusual to find an unused piece like this!
