Shibori Child's Kimono
Early 20th c

This unusual Japanese child's winter kimono is probably for a 3 year old. Very sweet, with a great design.



The large star like design is shaded blue on a natural cotton ground, padded and lined with natiural cotton, the lower section of a finer articfical? fabric.

23 in; 60 cm drop.


Very good. The face fabric is very slightly grubby, particularly on one shoulder, and the lining a little more so. One underarm seam 2 in; 5 cm is coming undone but a few stitches would rectify this.
