Shibori Clouds Jacket
A one of a kind jacket sewn from a black and white shibori kimono silk. Shibori is a kind of tie-dye. Tiny sections of the silk are tied off so that when the fabric is dyed the tied areas resist the dye. The designs look to me like large flower shapes. I sewed vintage glass beads in centers of the flower shapes. 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 44 inches bust, 47 inches hips, length at center back 25 inches. Size medium. [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.
