Notes from Nancy on her design: "Here is a shot of me in my "un-suit" that I made after your last visit to Mulberry. You suggested the Ikina jacket using the selvedge edge and a bias piece of silk/cotton to trim the front band. It's made out of a nice ribbed boucle. It gives the effect of a "suit" for work but is super comfy!"

Ikina featured in Linda's blog: "One of the most fun things that we doing right now is taking a new look at some of our patterns and rethinking the details. Although I love the Ikina Jacket with its side facings and openings, not everyone feels the same way about it. So just last week, Kathy made a beautiful Ikina out of a Chanel-like pink and black polkadot wool and lined it in another polkadot silk fabric. But the major change happened by lengthening the jacket to right above the knee, eliminating the side facings and sewing up the side seams."
Create unique loungewear! This Ikina Jacket, made from an orange quilted Cotton Jersey is a great look for a casual weekend. Wear this look with jeans or even coordinating jersey pants.
Ikina Jacket looks great here in medium weight reversible linen. Kathy is wearing a printed cotton Mimosa Top underneath, with the Plaza Pants to coordinate.
This jacket is an Ikina lengthened into a long kimono. The jacket and inner piping were created using rayon batiks from Dyenamic Batik. The copper outer piping is a Thai silk purchased from Laura Murray. The kimono is lined with silk charmeuse. The sashiko was completed using Nancy Shriber's technique with YLI rayon thread. Tiny gold beads were added to the center of the sashiko designs on the front lapel and side panels.
The Ikina Jacket is a great pattern for piecing. The jacket was created using vintage Japanese fabrics. The front and back pieces are cut from the same fabric from Niu Imports, as well as the sleeves. The bands are cut from different vintage kimono pieces from Ah Kimono. The Ikina Jacket is shown with the Ikina Pant made from a slate blue rayon blend from The Wool House.
A beautiful example of the Ikina Jacket. The contrast in fabric is great.
Get creative with every pattern you buy! There are so many variations you can design with any pattern, and the Ikina Jacket is no exception. This Ikina Jacket is made from Japanese Cotton, with a vintage kimono piece used as a belt. The alterations to create this look are simple: 1. The overall length of the garment is 1 1/2" longer. 2. Create a belt using contrasting fabric, with a finished length of 25" for each side. (this measurement can vary depending on size; alter to fit your body) 3. Each side facing is left off, creating a traditional side seam. Enclose the belt at your natural waist or desired location in the side seam.
