However, another very inexpensive silk juban came long and it actually works better than the red one for what I need. It better fit the budget for the project.
You see, I need to remove the sleeves. Which I did today! (Ah! Ripping out beautiful tiny, hand-sewn stitches). The fabric is so cute, I will keep the sleeves and either put them on a future juban or do something else with them such as use them to make han eri.
