Happi and Hanten #230
Happi Coat and Hanten: These two styles are for both men and women. The traditional Hanten is a boxy cut and has a wider collar band. The Happi is trimmer, has a narrower collar band with a choice of plain or cuffed sleeves. The generously sized patterns fit nearly everyone, from XS (30" chest) to XXXXL (60" chest).
Our Happi jackets can also be made in most fabrics for a wide variety of purposes. For the holiday season, use a soft draping velvet with a satin contrast band. Wear over a lace cami for a fabulous look. Use brocades and lightweight silk for traditional festivals and cotton barkcloth or calico and broadcloth for casual wear, terry cloth for after-swim and bath wraps.
The jackets may be made in all one fabric or with contrasting collar band and belt. You will need 3/4 yard of contrast fabric for any size. Fold the fabric selvedges together and cut out the follar and belt laying parallel to the selvedges.
