The Wiksten Haori is a simple yet stunning jacket. It features large pockets and a fold-over collar. This over sized jacket is functional, comfortable, and stylish. Fully lined and reversible (but with pocket on only one side), it looks more complicated to make than it actually is. The design includes three different lengths to choose from-- short (hip length), mid (below-hip length), and long (thigh length).
