Description
 
This listing is for a vintage Japanese kimono made for a young girl. There are (and were) few opportunities for little girls to wear kimono after the war, when western clothes were more common. So most post-war kimono for kids were for summer festivals or for formal occasions.

This is the first girl's kimono in a solid color we've ever seen. (And we apologize that the colors in the photos are inconsistent. The color is a true lipstick red -brighter than the first photo but without any of the orange cast that appears in the close ups.) The jacquard weave of the silk features six different family crests floating along as they catch the light.

There are several deep tucks at the shoulders and the waist - this is how kimono are shortened to fit a young girl - they let out the tucks as she grows. They can easily be removed.

This kimono is quite wearable - but please check the measurements against the child to confirm the fit before ordering. Kimono run small and remember that some of the length would be taken up at the waist when belted. It does not come with a sash but one can be purchased for $10 when you order.

Vintage Japanese children's kimono make eye-catching displays in spaces too small to accommodate a full sized kimono or haori.
