"Satin Stitch Sweetheart" Furisode Kimono

This listing is for a traditional vintage furisode kimono originally created for a young, unmarried woman.

Furisode are worn for formal events, such as Seijin-no-hi (Coming of Age Day, sometimes translated as Adults Day) in early January. Furisode are also worn for weddings, recitals, receptions, and other celebrations calling for formal attire. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

This furisode as a rich coral pink background which fades to a light buttercream behind the floral design. Those flowers are each masterfully embroidered in a dozen different colors, complete with shaded effects and gold edging. An exquisite example of satin stitch embroidery.
