You might try looking at op shops, as the print reminds me very much of something from the 70's. It looks like a medium weight non-stretch, with the grey being piping made from the same fabric as the other embelishments.

The dress style looks a little like Simplicity 4048, shortened a lot. There are probably closer ones out there though.

Also, the site is South Korean, not Japanese.

It wasn't the language...the Japanese currency is Yen.

Op shops are opportunity shops, or second hands stores, junk stores. Also, try markets, fairs, garage sales etc.

I know some people who are squeamish about venturing into that kind of shopping, but honestly, I have found some of the most lovely things (including my love of Oroton glo-mesh Wink).

I guess you guys are in the garage-sale dead season as well...that sucks.

This is an Oroton glomesh purse:


See how there are lots of light reflecting facets? They are all little (in this case) square tile like things which are joined onto each other rather than a backing, creating a pretty cool material. The purses were popular from the 50's to the 60's.

Your glowmesh purse is probably from the 50s/60s... but glowmesh was popular in the late 1920s to the 40s, too.
