This listing is for a vintage kimono made for a very little girl. There are (and were) few opportunities for young girls to wear kimono after the war, when western clothes were more common. So most post-war kimono for kids were for summer festivals or for formal occasions.

This kimono might have been for a special occasion at home - like when the grandparents came to visit? - or possibly as a sleeping kimono in the summertime. It's hard to image someone this small being able to walk in a kimono.

The patterning is cheerful - roundels of many flowers - in soft pastels on a soft orange background. It's light weight and the sleeves are very narrow, so it's likely to have been more for at-home wear than to wear out.

This kimono is still quite wearable - but please check the measurements against the child to confirm the fit before wearing. Kimono run small and remember that some of the length would be taken up at the waist when belted. It does not come with a sash but one can be purchased for $15 when you order.

Vintage Japanese children's kimono make eye-catching displays in spaces too small to accommodate a full sized kimono or haori.
