BJD kimono - Black Formal with Golden Phoenix

Handmade and hand-stitched OOAK BJD kimono made of authentic vintage Japanese kimono fabrics. Accurately sewn following old Japanese traditions. Doll kimono is sewn anew, fabrics are vintage.

I'm selling this kimono on Etsy
Sold out :)

This beautiful black kimono was real human sized tomesode before. The material was in excellent condition. It is 100% silk crêpe with embroidered golden phoenix. It is very attractive. 
This formal doll kimono is fully lined. It has the red lining used for most formal clothes. The lining is taken from other vintage kimono, decorated with woven cranes and golden dust clouds. Natural silk as well. 

This kimono is made for large 80-68 cm dolls like Soom Mecha Angel, IOS Class 80 Lacrimosa, Anarmonia, Iplehouse EID, Loong Soul 73-75 cm boys and 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.
On the photo the kimono is demonstrated 73 cm Loong Soul / Ivan. 

This beautiful very formal OOAK kimono set includes:
1. Black formal kimono with embroidered golden phoenix.
2. Ornate obi. Obi has a magic tape to splice it.
3. Additional cotton tie.

For me it takes few weeks or even a month to create a kimono set for the doll. So I have just one item to sell. I think it is some kind of beautiful art, not just ordinary thing to sell.
