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.)

We LOVE this Japanique Jacket. The rippling, wavy lines are so playful and fun - this would be an eye-catcher just worn over jeans and a white t-shirt. There's blue, green and golds along with the white layer of strokes that we believe were done freehand by the artist.

Behind the colors, note that the silk itself has a basketweave texture.

Each 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.
