1x Vintage Silk Mini 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 mini dress made from vintage kimono silk panel. It has a woven texture with mid sheen and features peonies amongst cherry blossoms and camellia flowers with gold accents throughout.
The fabric is in very good condition, with occasional staining from old age (note: this can ONLY be seen on the inside and does not affect the external condition of this garment). Has a branded label to mark which side is the back.
All apparel items are ironed prior to despatch.
This is a mini dress. You can wear it with safety shorts, or pair it with leggings. Depending on your height, it will be longer or shorter so please take this into consideration.
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

Can be folded flat into a neat rectangle for storage.


LENGTH (measured from top of garment to hem on a flat surface):
85cm

WIDTH (measured flat):
68cm

The narrower your shoulder, the longer the sleeves.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

-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.
