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,

This yukata is a festive design of temari balls - a traditional Japanese craft of covering a ball with an elaborately woven pattern. The elements were likely applied by stencil and colored by brush. Turquoise circles with little red dots fill the white space between the colorful balls.

There is a one-inch tuck at the shoulders that can be easily removed if desired.

There is a small hole at the left front collar area - see last photo - that could be repaired with a skilled seamstress or perhaps covered with an applique? Price reflect this blemish.

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.
