A one of a kind jacket pieced with silk fabric from a vintage Japanese kimono. Traditional motifs of cranes and pine trees cover the front, back and sleeves. The jacket can be worn with the top button open or closed. 6 vintage, glass buttons line the front. The jacket is fully lined with silk charmeuse.
A classic straight sided shape, I call this style 'Chanel'. The garment measures 45 inches bust, 47 inches hips, length at center back 23 inches. [Approximate industry size 14-16.]
All pieces are hand made one at a time in my Portland, Oregon studio. Fabrics are vintage Japanese silks. These very special fabrics were woven, stenciled, tie-dyed and painted by Japanese artisans. Many were still in the bolt on their way to become kimonos. Others had been sewn into kimonos but were no longer wearable. I remove the hand stitching, wash and prepare the fabrics for their new life. Each piece I make is unique, most are one of a kind. I ship USPS priority at the beginning of the week.
