This striking pure cotton lawn fabric is from Japan. The large flower motif and colour use were influenced by retro Japanese kimono fabric designs.
The nostalgic motif reminds me of the summer kimonos worn by girls in Japan, on the special occasions such as fireworks night and festivals.
The front is gathered below bustline to create a natural curve. Both the front and back bodice have deep V shape, which enhances the soft outlines of your face and neck. Also it is effortless to slip it on/off.
The shoulder is slightly dropped to create French sleeves.
This dress is a relaxed fit. However, due to the crisp cotton fabric it hangs differently compare to the Retro Dress in crepe.
This one feels more structured.
N.B. This dress has a plunged neckline and requires a camisole or tank top underneath. However, it is not sheer so no need for a petticoat.
The specifications for M size are; Ⓐ Waist 96cm Ⓑ Length 115cm
