Description
 
This Japanique Jacket is a deep, rich coral color (tending more toward orange than pink) with a textured weave of chrysanthemums - hundreds of them! - overlapping and shimmering over the entire jacket. Some were woven with twisted threads meant to catch the light. Excellent artistry.

Nice drape to the silk - might be a silk blend - and don't miss the
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.
