Renikeji is an elegant style that comes in top and gown lengths with two sleeve length options. 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 upRenikeji 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 looser 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.
The model is 5 feet 8″ (173 cm) and is wearing a blend of sizes 10 and 12.
