This bright, cheerful and colorful vintage barkcloth jacket is in the Japanese style, Hippari. The Hippari is a loose over jacket worn by the field worker in ancient Japan. The yellow pattern barkcloth has Asian men and women with a touch of lavendar in their clothing. There is red, several greens, grey and black. The red barkcloth has temples in grey and soft white/pale green floral motif and several shades of green leaves and trees. The sleeves are above the wrist so as not to interfere with work. I have added two front pockets and have lined the jacket so it can slip on and off with ease. The lining is a dark green like apple leaf. There are two ties in the front. A Japanese original Hippari jacket has two sets of ties so the jacket front can cross over and be more snug if needed. These jackets I make can be tossed in the washer/dryer. They are cotton with a polyester lining. Look sooooo good with casual pants, jeans and leggings. Because of their loose fitting style, they can be worn over sweaters, blouses, Tees and Camis. Add some jewelry and they are semi dressy.
I have several and wear them all the time especially in the evening to keep away the chill. The measurements are: sleeves approximately 19". This depends on how wide your shoulders are. The back center from under the collar to hem is 25" and the front from shoulder seam to hem is 26". The circumference from underarm all around is 55 1/2".

Fun to wear with lots of room, these jackets can be barn jackets, good for errand running and getting together with friends.

Vintage barkcloths make a two color Hippari jacket, yellow and red Asian patterns, M/L
