"Templescape" Japanique Jacket

We love these architectural motifs that take a bird's eye view of Japanese villages. This design seems to focus on a single temple, with the peaked roof of the temple and the rounded roof of a pagoda, nestled among thriving treetops.

The pattern seemed to be hand-drawn, perhaps with wax or with a rice paste resist. Great conversation piece whether it's worn or displayed!

Lovely pastel medallions on the lining.

Don't miss the secret pocket, it's hidden in the right front panel seam!
________________________
Each Japanique Jacket starts with a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures that was meant to be worn on top of a kimono. Most vintage michiyuki won't fit larger frames, so we modified the traditional garment slightly (removed the snaps, tacked the panels back to create lapels) to create a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18 or possibly larger. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly. See video below on the various types of kimono jackets.
