This is a wa-loli creation I am calling a ya-ta. The top is based on a traditional kimono, but with the top of the sleeve left open instead of the armpit. Also, instead of leaving the back side of the sleeve open, I left the front side of the sleeve open. All fabric edges are french seamed or fully rolled for a clean finish inside and out.
The bottom is a six-gore, bias cut skirt, with bias binding on the hem, an elastic waist band, and french seams between the gores.
Both pieces are made from linen blend material and pre-washed in hot water for easy laundering.
The outfit is finished off with a black linen corset flossed in pink, a five-tier crinoline. The only parts of the outfit I did not create are the black lace top, tabi, geta, mask, or necklace. The mask was created by Tom Banwell.
