#143 Japanese Michiyuki - Misses Extra Small (6-8) to 2XL (26-28)

This three-quarter length kimono-style jacket originated in the 20th century as an over-kimono coat that was worn for extra warmth and/or protection which out and about.  Its low , square neckline was designed to attractively frame the overlapping neckbands of the kimono and under-kimono worn underneath.  Today, the Michiyuki is also worn as a dressy overcoat, casual coat-dress, and artist's or work smock, perfect for studio or garden tasks.  Lengthened and made out of water-repellent fabric, it also functions as a raincoat.

The pattern features a double-breasted front opening, kimono style sleeves that are large enough to fit over a kimono underneath, narrow neck band with mitered corners, and a hand pocket hidden in the front seam.  Covered buttons are purely decorative; snap fasteners attach the overlapping center fort panels, so no buttonholes are needed.

LE#330 Cathay by Lois Ericson  $14.00  XS-XXL (4 - 26)

"China was originally called Cathay so the name is appropriate for this Chinese inspired pattern.  The vest opens in the center or has shaped extensions for an asymmetrical look.  The Chinese top, cut longer than the vest, has three views.  Also included are Chinese motifs, knot buttons & frogs, embroidery ideas."

If you've been following the Art to Wear movement for the past 30 years you'll recognize the last name Ericson as being synonymous with ethnic inspired clothing designs.  

I think this vest makes a perfect foil for a dress with smocked sleeves, maybe lattice work or if you prefect you can smock vertical panels and cut and sew to make a smocked vest.  Make it in raw silk for extra warmth.

You can make your kimono or evening coat in two lengths, a long robe, or as two big shirts or two vests to wear over any of the other pieces.  Quite a collection of potential outfits for one pattern.  Have some fun, make something different to wear.
