Details: This three-quarter length kimono-style jacket was worn for extra warmth and/or protection while out and about. Its low, square neckline was designed to attractively frame the overlapping neckbands of the kimono and under-kimono worn underneath. Wear it 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 mitred corners, and a handy pocket hidden in the front seam. Covered buttons are decorative only; snap fasteners attach the overlapping centre front panels, so no buttonholes are needed. Suggested Fabrics: Drapey fabrics with body, such as rayon or silk crepe for the outer Michiyuki; lightweight silk or cotton for the lining. NOTE: The Michiyuki is typically made from unpatterned fabrics with a woven-in design or texture, such as brocade. This is so the garment does not clash with the more elaborate designs of the underlying kimono. However, some Michiyuki fabrics have all-over designs like small checks or narrow stripes. Satin gives a more formal, dressy look. Microfibres and treated fabrics are good for a raincoat.
Designed for bust sizes 30.5" to 50".
