This listing is for a vintage cotton kimono - called a yukata - made for a young girl. This style is traditionally worn to summer festivals and can still be seen on the streets in Kyoto these days,

We've never had a black-based yukata for a little girl before.  Granted, the design is festive - colorful cherry blossoms seem to float against a light gray grid.  Yellow temari balls dot the patterning as well.

There is a two-inch tuck at each shoulder and an eight-inch tuck at the waist - all of which can be easily removed if needed.  These "tucks" are the traditional way to adjust the fit of a kimono as the owner grows.

Note the little ties attached to the front - the one of the right threads through the underarm opening on the left and around the back to tie with the tie from the left side. These would be tied in the back or front but then hidden underneath a colorful obi.

Vintage Japanese children's kimono make eye-catching displays in spaces too small to accomodate a full sized kimono or haori. We offer display rods (below) if you're going to display this kimono or simple cotton sashes (see option above) if this is to be worn more casually than with a traditional obi.
