BJD Kimono - Black Fromal Furisode with Sensu

I like to sew doll kimonos using authentic vintage Japanese kimono fabrics.

This beautiful black furisode – the most formal Japanese kimono – was real human size tomesode before. It is 100% silk crêpe, hand painted pattern, approximately end of Shōwa period. The material was in perfect condition. This formal kimono set has the red lining used for most formal clothes. The red lining is taken from other vintage red nakagi kimono. It is decorated with golden dust clouds and cranes. It’s natural silk as well. Obi is made from real obi, obiage is made from real obiage.

This beautiful very formal kimono set includes:
1. Black formal Furisode kimono with hand painted sensu (hand fan) and flowers.
3. Pretied golden obi with rose decoration.
4. Obijime golden-red.
5. Obiage red shibori pattern.
6. Two cotton ties with woven flowers.

The kimono set is demonstrated on 62,5 cm doll Haru (Abadon/Luts). Thank you my dear friend Countess Audronasha for borrowing your doll and taking photos. Thank you awesome boy Haru for posing so nicely.

Kimono length is 66 cm, sleeves length 33 cm.

This kimono fits 68~62 cm boy and girl dolls perfectly: SD, SD16, SD17, Luts SSD and SD, Iplehouse EID and SID, other large BJD. 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.
My kimonos are vintage. All materials I'm using are authentic vintage kimono fabrics from Japan. Doll kimono are sewn anew but materials are used as they were real Japanese kimonos before. 

Sold out.
