"Shichi Go San" Girl's Kimono

This is a lovely example of an expensive kimono tailored for a toddler but made so that it would still fit her when she's grown to a young teen!

Note the large tucks at the shoulders and waist that would be let out as she grows up.

Wonderful, traditional motif of a large imperial cart on the back, edged with gold couching, and smaller images of the same on the sleeves and elsewhere. Lively, bright, festive colors and patterning.

This is a formal kimono for a young girl – possibly meant for the Shichi-Go-San Festival, where children who are three, five, or seven years old visit the local temples and shrines as a rite of passage. These kimono were very expensive, so many times a larger kimono would be shortened by tucks at the shoulders and waist that could be let out as the child grows.
