#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.
FW#129 Japanese Hapi & Haori Misses 6-20; Men's 34-44
For formal occasions or everyday layered dressing, either jacket offers a
special touch to any wardrobe. Simple rectangular shapes are great for inventive
color and texture combinations. A pattern for the tabi, the traditional split-toe
slipper socks, is included. Suggested fabrics: For the Hapi, choose light
to medium-weight soft or crisp cottons or blends; silks with body such as
noil or shantung; linen; wool. For the Haori, choose light to medium-weight
soft fabrics with drape such as silk, rayon, or blends. For the Tabi, choose
medium-weight cotton or blends. Fabrics with nap, pile, or one-way design
are not suitable for either jacket.
While not exactly a kimono it has a strong oriental
influence which was popular in the 20's and 30's
