1x Vintage Silk Midi Dress as pictured
Only one available, one of a kind**
Have you ever wanted to wear kimono, but find it difficult to store/fold, source, maintain and most importantly wear? Wearing a traditional kimono takes many parts and steps, however now you can wear kimono inspired apparel designed for every day wear. Silk is a natural material and has excellent breathabiity, hypoallergenic and extremely durable meaning if cared for will last for many years. Vintage silk kimono and silk panels are given a new lease of life, with the entire panel being utilised and without the need to create or use new silk.
This is a midi dress made from vintage silk kimono I imported and unpicked myself. It has a smooth and underlying woven texture with clouds, low-mid sheen and features chrysanthemums, plum blossoms and flower carts against a vibrant blue base. There are gold accents throughout.
The fabric is in excellent condition. Has a branded label to mark which side is the back.
All apparel items are ironed prior to despatch.
This is a midi dress. There are two short splits on either side (briefly tested and passes the "running/ wide stride" test). While this dress is unlined, you are welcome to wear it with a slip if desired, though not required.
This dress fits most sizes - please check the measurements with your clothing, but I think it comfortably fits up to size 16.
Model is 163cm and wears size 10-12
*styled with a belt: not included
LENGTH (measured from top of garment to hem on a flat surface):
WIDTH (measured flat):
The narrower your shoulder, the longer the sleeves.
Can be folded flat into a neat rectangle for storage.
-Dry clean is recommended for silk items, however you can search how to clean a silk kimono online - any hand washing is done at your own risk, but I feel as this piece is embroidered it could be OK. Warm iron may be required.
