Hiroshima mon amour -Japanese gift shop kimono cut up and made into jacket and shawl. Picked up the kimono at a tourist shop for my wife, but it never was worn and just hung around the house. Finally I decided to chop it up a bit and reincarnate it into something she would wear.

    In many ways this garment made it self, after I cut the back longer than the front, the piece left was a perfect shape to make a shawl. This happens to me quite a lot, it’s magic.

    Very creative. What I specially like about this reconstruction is that it s still very japanese, in sense of pattern.

    Beautiful! A great repurposing of something that probably wouldn’t have gotten much wear.
