"Orange Delight" 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.

Bright orange background with gold clouds. Heavy patterning at the hem and one side of each sleeve - plenty of florals (mums, peonies, plum blossoms), some with couching embroidery. Clouds and swirling water jacquard. A few blemishes on the back and front, see photos.

The patterning was done with the yuzen technique with gold leaf accents - see videos below for how this is done.
