This beautiful shibori (tie-dye) is already cut to make a haori jacket. The skinny pieces under the arms are cut and attached by someone who knows what he is doing. It has not gone through Yunoshi, the process to stretch shibori using steam. The size of this gown is extremely small at this moment because a regular kimono roll (for short kimono) is used to make into shibori fabric. 36 inches x 16 1/2 inches long with 9 inches hemming tacked inside. The fabric is a good silk, an older silk without being mixed with other fibers. You can often find completely stretched flat shibori in old kimonos.

There are many thing that you can make using this fabric as is; hair ornaments (current ornaments use synthetic shibori), shawl, clothes etc.
