My friend Erin kindly took these pics for me a few weeks ago when she cooked me a lovely dinner at her house. She had also just very kindly altered this great silk kimono jacket for me – it’s Monsoon and I bought it from Oxfam for £6.99 with the Monsoon tags still on. But it had two very long ties at the front that just got in the way so she lopped them off.
And I love kimonos. I’ve got two really lovely full-length cotton kimonos and did a post a while ago about a fab vintage kimono trader called Fuji who is married to a former colleague.
The back is so pretty and the whole jacket is really well made. What a bargain!
