Description

Our graceful poncho design is based on a striking twentieth-century stencil (made after 1922) in the Museum's collection, which features a graphic pattern of a fence with chrysanthemums. In the Edo period (1615–1868) and even into the early twentieth century, such stencil-patterned textiles became increasingly elaborate and costly. While the stencils and the skilled craftsmen who created them produced exquisite results on fabric, the stencils are works of art in their own right, often showing breathtaking intricacy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very versatile and flattering Poncho The Japanese Chrysanthemums Sheer Poncho looks lovely layered over a black silk tank top.  It's airy and comfortable and I'm very happy I purchased it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful but needs repair The fabric is lovely and silky. The pattern is very nice. It drapes well. My only problem was that the few stitches under the right arm came undone and I need to stitch it together after one wearing!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from beautiful fabric design; very bad clothing design I loved this when I saw it on line and took it out of the box. But it just doesn't work as clothing on an average size person. It flares out and then stops just at widest part of the body. If only it were a few inches longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous This is as light as air and perfect for hot climates. It travels extremely well and folds up to nothing. One of my favorite tops to wear when it's hot outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exquisite! I love this exquisite silk chiffon with it's beautiful Japanese chrysanthemum print. I have used it for dressy occasions over a "little black dress" and receive numerous compliments and queries about where I got it. I have also worn it over a black long-sleeve t-shirt and black palazzo-style pants for dressy dates, and with levis for a casual, yet elegant feel. Many of my friends wonder where I find such gorgeous things to enhance my wardrobe.
