Description

Ever since I found this fabric in Nippori fabric district, I had been dying to use it.

Inspiration is from Miu Mui collection, where they used cat prints and bird prints for their clothing..

At first, I was searching for cat print, but could not find anything that’s stylish, and not too too quirky. Then I came across these little crabs and took the fabric roll right to the cutting board of the store.

I thought using this fabric all over the dress might be too much, so I used navy blue fabric for the skirt part.

blogged!

    So lovely, like all your creations. I also adore Miu Miu’s latest collection. It’s so clever how the prints are not too kitsch, and you have achieved the perfect balance here. Love all your cut-out backs!!

    So pretty! I love the back detail. Am I right in assuming that it is a fairly basic bodice with a portion of the back cut out? It’s great when something so easy has such a stunning result! Good job!
