Unlined girl's silk kimono made from ro crêpe. It looks as though it had been an adult's juban remodelled for a young child because:
1) the kimono is in the style of an undergarment (without the collar and overlap of a kimono)
2) deep pleats have been taken in on the shoulders, and there is a four inch hem
3) the scale of the design in relation to the size of the garment suggests it was for an adult rather than a child.
The printed design combines vivid blue carnations with thick stems of bamboo on natural colour of silk.
