This listing is for a vintage Japanese haori (kimono jacket) that we modified slightly to allow for a roomier fit on larger frames. 

This Oki Haori features dozens of a purply-brown hexagon shapes tumbling along a buttery tan background.  The hexagon or honeycomb shape is auspicious, referring to the tortoise shell which synbolizes long life. Some of the shapes hold a "homestead" scene of two small buildings nestled among tall pine trees.

We suspect this was patterned with a katagami stencil, and that the fiber content is a silk blend, but we can't be sure.  Nice weight and drape. 

Great medium weight silk with a flowy drape.

In our Oki Haori 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. (See photo for detail.) 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, keeping in mind that the measurements we give are the haori measurements, not a recommendation for the wearer's measurements.
