1x Vintage Silk Top 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 long top made from vintage kimono silk panel. It has a crepe-ish texture (there is an underlying woven texture that is not the wiggly crepe texture) and is mostly matte and features clouds amongst some pinks and whites with kanoko dots and cherry blossoms amd pine tree landscape. The cart also makes an appearance, with sensu fans.
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 top is a bit on the long side, and for shorter people you could get away with this as a mini dress, otherwise it is best paired with leggings, jeans/pants.
This long top 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):
78cm

WIDTH (measured flat):
70cm

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.
