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.)

This Japanique Jacket is both lively and subtle. The colors are lively for Spring - various shades of pink in an understated rippling wave pattern that creates movement in the design.

There's a "secret" pocket on the front right side just below the lapel.

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.
