"Embroidered Surprise" Fabric Bolt

A full bolt of vintage Japanese silk, intended for a formal furisode kimono but never sewn.

The patterning is different in each of six areas along the bolt where it would appear once sewn into a formal kimono, with blank areas in between.

This bolt is a light cream with brown florals that we think were intended to be embroidered over, but this was never finished. There is only one area that features a beautifully hand-done design of two spools with embroidered small motifs - pine and blossoms.

Some light blemishing (small pin-sized spots) scattered, but still offers many options for using the featured images.

These bolts are patterned with the imagery placed to appear in the correct locations on the kimono once it is cut and sewn. For example, in one section the patterning only extends half way across the bolt - this is where the collar would be cut. There are markings at the edges indicating where to cut to get each panel needed for sleeves, collars, front and back panels, etc. but of course you can cut it anywhere and make anything you want!
