We're happy to offer shipping to the USA and most other countries.

Here's a lovely vintage Asian kimono that was modified some time ago into more of a dress style. It is black with a beautiful cloud and flowers scene on the back and along the hem. There are 3 drawings that I've learned are crests. The inside is lined in shimmery red silk. The dress has capped sleeves. It closes with an inside belt and a single hook on the left side.

Please see the photos. They show this beauty better than I can describe it.

Fabric: silk

Label: none

Condition: This item is in fair condition with several flaws. Sold AS IS, possibly as a study or pattern piece, or just for somebody who will enjoy wearing it, flaws and all.

First, the black fabric is faded. 

The gold cord-like thread that outlines much of the flowers has come off in places.

The area around the crest designs is much darker than the rest of the fabric.

The silk on the inside has pulled apart in areas.

You can see photos of most of these in the photos below.
