This listing is for a Japanique Jacket – slightly modified from a vintage kimono jacket (michiyuki) to create a roomier, casual fashion piece that suits sizes 10-16 very well. (See modification details below.)

This Japanique Jacket is a sweet grapey purple color though the dye work was done to create a cloudy, mottled - almost a night sky - design. See photo of the full back to appreciate the effect. Because dotted here and there are small silver and gold elements that could be stars....

The fabric has a slight texture of thin, thin lines, and there's a hidden pocket on the right side of the front panel, just under the lapel. Striped lining, too.

ach Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with a deep, square neckline and 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 by removing the snaps and tacking the panels back to create lapels). The result is an open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 10-16. Japanique Jackets can 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.
