Kantou, Japan






Old style dress from Japanese pattern book.
I like the collar, but it was difficult:(
I’m going to wear it on my friend’s wedding party.

    So beautiful, I am going to cry! I have been looking for certain dress patterns and all I need to do is visit your page to see it realized! I love this dress!

    Is there any way for us mortals on the north american continent to get a hold of the pattern book that this and that GORGEOUS linen dress came from?

    Konnichiwa, satomi! This is so beautiful, and everyone’s comments (above) are accurate. It’s a classic, elegant, and feminine piece you’ll use for many years. Plus, you’re a fine tailor – all of your creations demonstrate your skill level. I’m wondering if you’re willing to share the pattern or would help those of us who’d wear this to figure out an adaptation? This style would suit many, many figures! Arigato gozaimas!
