Who has the drape drape dress book by Hisako Sato?

I just received my book in the mail yesterday and I absolutley love it! It's all in Japanese but everything is fairly easy to understand except I would really really like to make no.3 Gather Drape Dress and I am unsure if it is made from a knit or woven, does anyone have the book that could let me know?

I just wonder if she wears silk.  That's an animal product too.   Tongue

She did specify no silk actually.

And in reply to the O.P

It's not just the fact it comes from animals, sheep used for wool are often live incredibly awful lives. The most commonly raised sheep are Merinos, specifically bred to have wrinkly skin, which means more wool per animal. This unnatural overload of wool causes many sheep to collapse and even die of heat exhaustion during hot months, and the wrinkles collect urine and moisture. Attracted to the moisture, flies lay eggs in the folds of skin, and the hatched maggots can eat the sheep alive. To prevent this so-called "flystrike," Australian ranchers perform a barbaric operation-called "mulesing"-where they force live sheep onto their backs, restrain their legs between metal bars, and, without any painkillers whatsoever, slice chunks of flesh from around their tail area. This is done to cause smooth, scarred skin that can't harbor fly eggs. Ironically, the exposed, bloody wounds themselves often get flystrike before they heal.

Within weeks of birth, lambs' ears are hole-punched, their tails are chopped off, and the males are castrated without anesthetics. Male lambs are castrated when they are between 2 and 8 weeks old, either by making an incision and cutting their testicles out or with a rubber ring used to cut off blood supply-one of the most painful methods of castration possible. Every year, hundreds of lambs die before the age of 8 weeks from exposure or starvation, and mature

K lots of photos.... but I just couldn't pick my favourites!
This is a romper I made from pin-striped fabric, accented with ruffles and bows down the front! This shoot was for a publicity stunt for a market I'm doing next weekend. I didn't make the other outfits - they're from other designers who are doing the market.

Wow!! Do you have a tutorial on how to make the bustier tops? I've been looking for one for a long time and these are perfect!
Which bustiers?
The Bra style ones I lengthened a Bra Pattern by 4", and extended the back 1" so I could use a woven fabric
The other ones I drafted a strapless top pattern that goes a little past the waist and boned all the font/side seams!

50 dollars for a 5x6 foot showcase for a month seems ridiculously cheap to me, Most shows I pay about $125 for a day..
