This is a VINTAGE Japanese Nagajuban to be worn with Furisode. Nagajuban are under-kimono. This piece likely originates in the mid Showa Period (1926 - 1989) and features a pattern of orchids and geometric lines.
I have inspected this kimono in detail, and there is some damage. There are a number of stains and a few spots where the seams have separated. These can be mended with a few stitches though. Overall I would rate this juban in fair condition. Measurements will be posted soon.
130cm - Long (Collar to Hem)
126cm - Arm span
60cm - Width across the back
126cm - Total width of skirt
92cm - Sleeve drop
If you are unsure of how to interpret the kimono's size it is important to know that the length (collar - hem) should be approximately 10cm longer to 10cm shorter than the wearer's overall height (longer is better). This is because the excess length will be folded up at the waist. However, with juban, the garment's length should be equal to the distance from the wearer's shoulders to the floor. Meanwhile, the skirt should wrap around the hips a full 1.5 times. The armspan should also reach wrist to wrist on the wearer. In this case, the kimono will ideally fit a woman about 160cm (5'3") tall, with hips about 84cm (33") around. There is some give and take in these measurements though.This piece is currently up for sale in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/listing/207338120…
