    My friend and I have been talking about ethical clothes shopping and one of my personal goals is either to buy from the op shop or make it myself. The japanese dress style is beautiful in its simplicity and its a joy to make clothes that are beautiful for more than one reason. =) Love their love for natural fibers too!
    Thanks for the opportunity!
