Vintage Clothing and Kimonos are not sized the same as modern manufactured clothing. Everything sold by ThisBlueBird will include actual garment measurements in inches. When choosing an item please refer to the measurements and compare them with a similar style garment you already own. Please note the measurements are actual garment measurements and you must leave 2 to 3 inches between your actual measurements and the garment for ease of movement.

Very pretty vintage late 1940s to early 1950s silk kimono robe furisode, in ivory with a rinzu woven phoenix bird pattern, and a floral design in bright pink, blue, and purple with silver accents. It is lined in a combination of pink ombre dyed silk crepe and tan silk. It comes with a sash that has been hand made from vintage silk kimono fabric.
The exterior is in very good condition, showing a few scattered spots and some discoloration on a sleeve. The tan silk portion of the lining has darkened over time with uniform foxing and spots, the lining is not visible when wearing. See these in the last photo.
