This garment would make a wonderful and unique gift. This furisode would be perfect as traditional dress, as a unique robe or coat, or to hang on a wall for display. Could also be used for anime/manga/cosplay, for textile crafts, or as an unusual and striking wedding gown.
Traditional kimono styling, with square shaped, very long sleeves and a wrap front, which makes the fit very adaptable. Furisode is a wedding kimono, it is characterised by very long sleeves. Long sleeves are considered to be sexy in Japan, and are worn by unmarried girls.
This is the most formal type of kimono in use today. As they can cost many hundreds of pounds, most girls cant afford to own one and so they are usually hired for special occasions.
In my opinion this would best fit a UK size L/XL (UK 12-16 and possibly a little larger). Kimono are adaptable in size due to the overlapping front. This kimono would have been be worn with an obi sash. I have several obi for sale in separate listings, and others available on request.Could also be worn with a wide belt, cord, or sash, depending on your requirements. The length would normally be adjusted by folding over at the waist and securing with a cord hidden under the obi. Shoulder to shoulder 63.5cm 25.... Sleeve length 110cm 43.3. Weight 1250 grams All measurements are approximate. Please check carefully and make your choice. NB: THERE ARE THOSE WHO SELL CHEAPER AND LESS COLLECTIBLE KIMONO AND DESCRIBE THEM AS FURISODE WHEN THEY ARE NOT. A FURISODE MUST HAVE SLEEVES OF A MINIMUM LENGTH OF 85CM.
