Michiyuki Kimono Coat H820- hand-stitched by kimono makers in Japan. May have been previously worn but in excellent condition.
The fabric is silk with a twist in it called chirimen. It's rather heavy silk. The patterns are wonderful and in such rich colors. At first I thought this was stencil
dyed silk but I think it is printed to mimic stenciling.
There is one pocket in the front panel. The coat is lined in a coral and white patterned silk. The entire garment is spotless and fresh. It is possible that this was never worn.
These make a great dress or topper worn over leggings.
Features the traditional hanging sleeve of a kimono. Measures 50" from sleeve tip to tip. Length is 34.5" from back of neck to hem. Michiyuki jackets are double breasted and close with covered snaps. To accommodate the low neckline wear a scarf, camisole or turtleneck under it. Chest area is 44", hip area is 44". May fit about a size 12-14.
These garments look best on tall, straight figures.
