"Lilac Shibori" Oki Modified Japanese Haori - XL

A soft, casual kimono jacket perfect for a summer wedding! The background is a lilac purple with a mosaic-mix of arching lines woven into the silk. Scattered across the back (with just one on the front of the left sleeve) are stemmed flowers created with the shibori technique. See video below on how shibori is done.

These slightly modified vintage Japanese kimono jackets offer a comfy fit for larger women. In our Oki Line (oki means "big" in Japanese) of modified haori jackets, we open up the gusset and underarm seams and then re-attached them using every inch of the salvage seam edges. This yields up to an additional 6" of width in the waist, hip, and bust measurements.

Whereas unmodified haori tend to be more narrow at the bust because the side gussets gradually narrow from waist to bust, our Oki Haori do not taper at the bust, which gives you more coverage in front. Compare your measurements to those given, and keep in mind that the measurements we give are the haori measurements, not a recommendation for the wearer's measurements.

Remember, vintage haori do not cross over or tie with a sash, like a kimono does - they are meant to be worn open to reveal a bit of what is worn beneath.
