Rank A-/B+ Vintage Japanese Kimono/ Black Tomesode Kimono/ Women formal kimono/Traditional Pattern/Locating Stitches/Tradional clothing/ A58

[With locating stitches]- It is common for a new kimono to have some locating stitchesl, also known as tacking stitches. These temporary stitches are used to keep the various layers of the kimono fabric in place during the sewing process. It may be left in place to help the kimono keep its shape during storage. People typically remove the locating stitches before wearing a kimono. Leaving the stitches in place can cause the fabric to pucker or pull in an unflattering way when the kimono is worn. That being said, if a kimono still has its locating stitches, it is likely that it has not been worn or only worn briefly.
