I got this fabric from Kimono’s second hand shop. It’s silk, and it was maintained through the cleaning (Arai-hari in Japanese). This is so simple, with only straght seams (except the collar lines)
Unfortunately this fabric shrunk too much more than I expected, so after just one wash, this dress becomes for someone who is more thinner and shorter than I…..
