I completed this kimono as a commission. It's probably one of the prettiest I've ever sewn - the fabric is just gorgeous! I included a detail of it, so you can all see. Otherwise I layed the kimono out so you can get a view of the beautiful composition on it.
This type of kimono with the long dangling sleeves is called a furisode - it's meant to be worn by young unmarried women. The person who commissioned me wanted to be able to wear it hikizuri style - with the hem trailing on the ground. I didn't pad the hem, but I kept as much length on it as the fabric would allow.
The furisode features tabane-noshi (ribbon) and fan motifs. Within the fans are various other designs including plum and cherry blossoms, thread bobbins and bamboo to name a few.
