Unique Japanese Wedding Gown, Embroidery in Soft Blue
Price on Request

Unique Japanese Uchikake (wedding gown), embroidered in thick light blue silk, the liner is red silk without padding except at the bottom hem. The pattern is from ancient Chinese "Shokko nishiki". The colors of silk are slightly different on different parts of the gown. We expose the gown under sun light when we took extra photos The gold (and pearl color) in silk clearly showed up this time. This did not affect the look in a negative way, at least, I thought so.

The condition is excellent with the basting stitches still intact. Dimensions: 52 1/2" wide (sleeve to sleeve) x 74" long, the sleeves, 47" long.
