Reconstruct, Jacket and Skirt
A one of a kind, vintage Japanese, kimono silk fitted jacket and full skirt. The skirt is pieced from two different kimono silks, each color is a separate piece of fabric. The matching jacket is sewn from a Japanese design called 'tortoise shell.' The jacket and skirt have hand appliqued blue squares scattered over the surface. The jacket is fully lined with silk charmeuse. 5 glass buttons line the front. A tie belt is included for a closer fit. The skirt has a zipper and hook closure for dressing ease. The waistband has elastic for comfort. It is fully lined.
The jacket measures 39 inches bust, 36 inch waist and 41 inches hips. The length at center back is 20 1/2 inches. [Approximate industry size 10-12.]
The skirt's elasticized waist measured between 26 and 34 inches. The length measured from the top of the waistband to the hem is 30 1/2 inches.
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.
