"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.
