Designer Noriko Sekiguchi combines two Japanese textile traditions — the kimono shape and sashiko, an old form of Japanese running-stitch embroidery on Indigo cotton.

While the knit "patches" look complex, they are actually achieved quite simply by strategically placing blue purl stitches over white knitted stitches and framing each patch with a white running stitch.

This jacket is actually much easier to make than it looks!

The back of the jacket is made in two pcs. with a center seam, typical of kimono construction.
