1940s Floral Pastel Hand Painted Pink & Blue Silk Kimono

This stunning silk kimono has a dreamy and romantic print in shades of pinks and blues that range from the palest of colors to a deeply saturated pastel. It looks to have never been worn or used and would be perfect to use as wedding kimono or on your honeymoon, or to top an evening ensemble. Of course it also works as a lingerie piece for the boudoir as well. It is just lovely and one of the best I have seen. The print is hand screened and painted with hauntingly beautiful floral motifs. I just love the romantic feel of the huge blossoms as they trail across the surface of the kimono. These are fantastic to wear at home and you can even make these work as a dress if you add a silk slip under it and cinch the waist closed with a sash or belt. Excellent condition

The kimono is fully lined with an ivory silk and has no closures.

Sleeves: 13" with a 42.5" drop
Shoulders: 27.5"
Bust: 26" flat across from side seam to side seam
Length: 65" from neck to hem
