This is the second product out of the old kimono fabric.
This blouse has only two parts; left and right, and both are just rectangular.
I used a dress pattern from last year’s Mrs’s Stylebook (in Japan), and made some changes.
This blouse has elastic bands on cuffs, and two tucks at the sides of neck give a kind of designed feeling.
Anyhow, this blouse with widely opened neck and a lot of slake is so good for humid and hot summer in Japan!
