BJD Kimono Set "Sakura Blossom"

Please visit my Inarisan's Crafts Store on Etsy. I'm selling doll kimonos for 69 ~ 63 cm boy and girl dolls. Hope you like my crafts.

My kimonos are vintage. All materials I'm using are authentic vintage kimono fabrics from Japan. Obi are made from real obi, obiage are made from real obiage. Obijime are handmade using Japanese kumihimo disc for braiding.

About Inarisan:
I'm not manufacture, I'm working alone. Some period in my life I was sewing clothes for people. Now I have other serious job and sewing is my beloved hobby. My first kimono was sewn for my daughter few years ago. It was a challenge! I have learned a lot about kimono since.
For me it takes few weeks or even a month to create a kimono set for the doll. So I have just few items to sell. I think they are some kind of beautiful art, not just ordinary things to sell.

I live in a non-smoking household.
I have a cat, but she is not allowed into my sewing room. "Don't you dare to stick your furry paw into my sanctuary!"

Payment : Paypal (credit card), Paypal (balance).

Shipping Information: Item ships from Lithuania, European Union, within 3 business days after receiving the payment.

Sold Out!
Beautiful sakura pattern kimono set. 
The kimono set is demonstrated on 68 cm doll (Scout/Granado).
It fits 69~63 cm boy and girl dolls perfectly. For smaller dolls to adjust the length make a fold on the waist (under the obi). Don't worry - this is a traditional way of kimono wearing.

This set includes:
1. Nagajuban

Bright purple silk. Very thin. Woven pattern and hand colored flowers.
Kimono is decorated with rosy silk stitches and biser beads.
No lining. Cotton tie added.

2. White sakura blossom pattern kimono
Combined silk and synthetic fiber. The lining is silk taken from original kimono lining.
Very interesting is sleeves' lining - it's pure silk, very old and light, bright colors, hand fan pattern. Of course you can see only tiny part of it on the sleeves, but it's good to know about hidden beauty. That is also a Japanese tradition. You can view this lining only if you purchase this kimono.
Kimono decorated with flowers applications and glass pearl beads.
Cotton tie added.

  3. Obi & obijime & obiage  
Pre-tied obi is easy to put on. It is made from real girl's obi. Why girl's obi? It has small pattern so it fits for doll. Obi band is decorated with flower, chainlets, beads and 2 bells. They are tingling!
Hand-braided obijime with obidome. Well, that's not the real obidome, but obijime's decoration anyway.
And obiage - it was sewn from real pink obiage. Shibori pattern.

4. The Gift - yellow atlas obijime, colorful tassels added. It looks very decorative.

You can wear the purple kimono in the other way like outer layer:

Thank you for watching.
