~ This one's called "Dragon," thanks to the vintage embroidered dragon on the back, taken from a re-purposed Japanese kimono. From the same kimono, braided tassel ornaments dangle from the sleeves; front yokes show Asian figures; back side panels have double-layered effects with red satin cutouts under silk cut velvet. Brightly colored flowers of silk velvet are appliqued on the collar and under the pockets; gold Asian symbols hang from the front yokes; silk fringe creates a peplum effect at back waist.
