Girl's Kimono, Chan Chan Ko, Bag & Bow
  • A really pretty kimono, with matching padded chan chan ko (kimono waistcoat, sometimes called a hifu) and drawstring bag plus a pretty bow hair slide with a little bell on it
  • Made and bought in Japan
  • The kimono is fastened with the attached white front ties. You thread the tie on the inner front edge out through the armhole and round to the back, then take the one on the outer front edge round to the back and tie them. An obi/sash is usually worn on top, such as a soft heko obi, though, with the ties, not essential
  • Children's kimonos are traditionally worn with big tucks loosely sewn into the shoulders on the outside, narrowing the garment. They are shortened to suit by making a big fold-over at the waist and tied in place with a soft tie and an obi worn on top.
  • The Japanese take great pains to store their traditional garments with the utmost care, which is why they stay in such exceptional condition. Some of my Japanese garments have large, white stitching (shitsuke) round the edges. The Japanese put these stitches in to keep the edges flat during long periods of storage, these stitches just get pulled out before wearing the garment
