Six Meters

Six Meters Yup, 6 meters. About 18 feet of pure beautiful silk organza. Smooth gradation of all natural indigo. Hopefully. You wouldn't believe the ways in which you have to use every part of your body to successfully dye such a big piece. Yesterday when I went to the Kuno Textile Studio in Arimatsu to pick up the fabric, I was met with " 6 meters??! What the heck are you going to do with 6 meters?" Well, sit pretty folks because these 6m are soon going to take the shape of the voluptuous skirt of the very first NellieRose couture dress.
