Janimaru's shop is filled exclusively with her sweet and flirty mini skirts. While they are very short, Janimaru reassures her shoppers that her skirts are also really well made and versatile. She states that her mini skirts can be worn as shown, over pants/tights, as a bathing suit cover-up, or even as lingerie.

In looking over her store, I could see the fine workmanship in Janimaru's skirts. I found her prices to be reasonable, and knew better than to judge the product by the quantity of material that goes into the finished product, as is almost always the case with fine lingerie and swimwear.

As one who loves to sew, I can attest to the fact that working with sheer and fine-handed fabrics and laces aren't always as easy as they might appear to be. A seamstress has to be very knowledgeable about how to handle such delicate, finely woven or knitted, slippery, unstable, and generally very "uncooperative" fabrics. She also has to be familiar with her machine, the proper tools and settings to use, and be knowledgeable about the proper techniques for stitching and joining totally different kinds of fabric, such as delicate laces and satins to more full bodied elastics. And, the sewer has to be able to create seams that lie flat, without puckers, gaps, or curls, and that are able to stretch without breaking the threads that hold them.

Janimaru asks that prospective buyers please check the measurements in the description before ordering. She invites and welcomes questions and special requests to recreate something from the sold item listings.

I've chosen her Aloha Micro Mini Skirt as my favorite because it's basic black and white, and very cute and feminine! Please stop by Janimaru's shop to take a look!
