Japanese Wedding Gown with embroideries, some stains. There is no trace of being worn on this Uchikake wedding gown. The outer fabric is white (creamy, light tan) silk and the liner is also high quality silk which makes it very light in weight. There are some color migrations from the embroidery yarns. You can look at it as a bokashi (gradual shading), with the color change right around the embroideries. The one on the left shoulder is visible and the coloring spreads to the front shoulder. These color migration can give an interesting effect. Everything else, including the liner, is in new condition except ... white silk changes color in time. As for the quality, it is exceptionally high. The dimensions are: 49 inches across the tips of sleeve, 62 1/2 inches long. The embroideries in the center area cover 37 1/2 inches in length.
