Description
 
Ah, Japanese shibori - tie-dye but so much more. This jacket features an overall kaneko shibori pattern - thousands of tiny dots! - with lot of pucker. Olive green and white are the main colors but the dye work seems to offer deeper and lighter shades behind the many little dots.

It's a light and airy jacket, great for Spring.
And there's a secret pocket on the right side only!

Each Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures 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 and tacked the panels back to create lapels) to make a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18. Japanique Jackets could also be crossed over and belted on a smaller sized person. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly, see measurements given.
