Baby Kimonos

This past Friday was the Goodwill's 50% off sale! Usually I find the prices at the Goodwill high but children's clothes are priced right at 99 cents a piece so for an extra 50% off I made a point of stopping in. I'm always on the hunt for vintage children's wear in cool fabrics. I scored big when I found these vintage baby kimonos! I also picked up 2 Japanese books for 50 cents each; "Out For A Walk" by Shizuko Wakayama and "Suki's Kimono"-by Chieri Uegaki.

I love the fantastic range of vibrant colours and designs used in these baby kimonos.

Isn't the cherry blossom fabric gorgeous! I picked up the tiny Pair of wooden getas, traditional japanese sandals, from the Salvation Army for a $1. 

The goldfish fabric is fresh and vibrant! This kimono includes a tiny pair of shorts -too cute!

What I love most about baby kimonos are how practical they are for babies. Babies hate having anything pulled over their heads so a wrap style baby kimono allows you to avoid upsetting your baby at changing time.

Here's Elsa May sportting her 'nearly new' baby kimono! Happy 6 month Birthday Elsa May!
Hope you had a "thrifty weekend"!


  1. That is a good find, love the cherry blossom fabric! You need to make one for mummy!

  2. I can't believe Elsa is already 6 months! Cute outfit on her.

    1. Thanks Neeta! I too can't believe she is 6 months already!
