Light Summer kimono style jacket. A fairly free size from a uk size 12 to a 14. Available in my Etsy Shop.
I have hand painted this vibrant kimono style jacket using pure crepe de chine silk. The ombre blended colours have been over layed with painted dye six times to obtain the surface variety and colour depth. The dye is permeated through the fibres of the silk and has been steam fixed for colour fastness. It is stitched inside with French seams, the hem, sleeves and lapel have been stitched by hand for a beautiful drape. This garment may be washed by hand in a mild detergent, gently squeezed and drip dryed on a hanger and ironed on a silk setting. It is a perfect garment for holiday packing as it is light - you just roll it up like a tube - so no creases!
