    This is beautiful. She looks so regal. Do all brides wear dresses similar to this in Japan?

      At the normal wedding ceremony of Japan, the bride wears a common dress.This dress may not fit a normal wedding ceremony.^^;

    Fantastic dress!

    The jacket of the bridegroom also looks to be made by Kimono fabrics, right ?

    Beautiful. I love the way you have suggested the traditional lines of the uchi-kake with the sleeve line and length of the gown. I was given a beautiful uchi-kake and I cannot imagine cutting into it to create another garment. Your garments are stunning.

      Thank you!
      I think the reason why I can reproduce this
      traditional lines of the uchi-kake what you say,is I am Japanese, and I saw kimono.
      I feel the lines of kimono is so elegant.

      I think that it is important ,to keep a soul and the atmosphere to have of the kimono.I think that you succeed by all means if you do so it.
