Renikeji-Asymmetric raglan sleeve knit dress
Renikeji is an elegant style which comes in top and gown lengths with two sleeve length option. A close fitting dress featuring raglan sleeves, funnel neck, and asymmetric drapes that converge to form a grown-on corsage. A versatile dress/top that can be worn casually or dressed up for an elegant evening dress look.
Making-up Renikeji is easier than it looks, requiring no zip or fastening as it is designed for knits. The style is designed as a very close fit (think bodycon) but if a loser fit is preferred, one can go a size higher. The gown version is knee length while the top just hits the hip line. The long sleeve option skims the wrist while the shorter sleeve option comes just a few inches below the elbow.
