"Summer Days" Girl's Kimono

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. See below for a cute video featuring kid wearing traditional kimono.

This is a layered set - a plain cream colored under-kimono is worn beneath the beautifully patterned but semi-sheer ro silk kimono. The two layers of open weave silk provide a cooling effect on hot summer days.

Pink shading at the hem, blue clouds scattered behind the design, and lots of brilliantly colored flowers. A bit of embroidery on some of the florals and a light spot on the front collar.

The patterning was done with the yuzen technique - see video below for how this is done.
