"Butterfly Whimsy" Furisode Kimono

This is a traditional furisode kimono created for a young, unmarried woman. Note the long sleeves (furi = long, sode = sleeves) sometimes called "butterfly sleeves", which flow with grace when she gestures, attracting male attention!

A pleasant light celery green background with a floral jacquard is the background for beautifully drawn butterflies. Colorful with silver and gold accents including couching.

Currently shortened a bit with a basted tuck just above the hem, but it could be easily let out by removing the stitching to gain 12 more inches of length. Velcro is sewn on the front collar in two spots for ease of dressing. Two blemishes on the back side sleeve - see photos.

This pattern was done with the yuzen technique. See videos below to learn more about the techniques used to create this design as well as how to fold it properly.
