Description
 
This lovely little vintage silk jacket has a fascinating, dense collage of patterning that reminds us of architectural elements: columns, archways, sconces, as well as feathers, swirls, and more. We believe it was all hand-painted and challenge the buyer to find an exact repeat of any section. Browns on a crepey cream silk - so intriguing.

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. We do offer haori himo ties that can be added to the little loops you find on either side of the front collar - just check the box when ordering and for $5 more we'll choose a pair that goes well with your jacket.
