A juban is an under kimono usually worn beneath a silk kimono to protect it. This juban made with a muslin* blend, would make a lovely house robe.It has been shortened by a horizontal pleat being introduced at the waist (image 4). Similarly it has two vertical shoulder area pleats (5) to reduce the width.

*Japanese muslin, used for juban, is often made from fine wool or a wool blend - it feels very like cotton in texture.
An haneri is a collar that is sewn on to a juban to avoid getting the kimono collar dirty. The black haneri collar on this gown has a silky feeling.
