Cute Cottons!

Ryu Japan has just put up some great modern, pretty cotton bolts that are meant for yukata (summer cotton kimono) but could be used for any number of cute clothing projects.

At some point I'll post a dress I've made myself using a yukata: the fabric tends to be stiffer than broadcloth you'd buy in a local fabric store but is pretty easy to work with.

I'm also hearing that there was a kimono segment at the Tokyo Fashion Festa hosted by FIT in New York City today: more on that tomorrow after I get more info!
