"Blue Lotus" Woman's Japanique Jacket

This is a slightly modified vintage Japanese kimono jacket designed to offer a roomier fit.

This jacket has a raw silk feel but without the telltale woven nubs. A lovely light sky blue background with bands of design in a darker shade of the same blue, and each band filled with little abstract motifs. Maybe lotus root (the blue circle filled with little white circles)? and a diamond and "dancer" motif, all done by hand with a brushed on resist paste before it was dyed. A great piece with jeans.

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.

Our 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.
