Gingko Leaves Velvet Kimono in shorter style
• One size fits most:
This kimono is a shorter version of my regular kimono!!!! It is 27" long in the back from the nape of the neck.
All the kimonos listed can be made shorter.
Once the fabric is made, it is sewn together into this simple kimono shawl style. The rolled edge hem measures 26"long in the back (from the neck down). The boxy silhouette is 42" in circumference fitting and draping nicely on many body types.
My Gingko leaves pattern in devoré silk-velvet. Sheer silk chiffon, dyed a dark gray to black tone. An all-over shimmering velvet pile which I hand-painted in a watercolor style using more permanent dyes. The dye flows from my brush bleeding in to the pattern.
It can be worn with jeans or with a special dress.
This kimono was pre-washed as part of the dying and hand-painting process. A cold, gentle cycle will make it softer. A hot dryer will make it fluffier.
• Silk chiffon backing with rayon velvet pile.
All natural materials make it luxuriously soft.
