Upcycled Kimono dress-

I am rather happy with this dress, with a mao-style collar and a sixties touch…

It is made out of polyester, but when you touch it, the fabric does not look artificial.

I have lengthened the collar ribbon, which enables to make a kind of belt tied under the chest.

You cannot really see it well on the pictures, but I have added some metallic pink thread.

The dress pattern is taken from  pages 21 and 64 of the book by Minako Hayama, Jitsubutsudai katagami kimono rimeiku bukku.
