Based on the original manga by Aoi Ikebe.
In a small, quaint town near Kobe stands a small dressmaking shop: la maison de couture Minami. The creations of its proprietress, Ichie Minami, are always in demand – unique items that are loved for their grace and nobility. Having inherited the business from her grandmother, Ichie continues to follow in her footsteps by using an old-fashioned sewing machine and following her dress patterns and designs.
Hearing about Ichie's superb skills, Fujii, an employee of a major department store, comes to her shop to try and convince her to create her own brand. When he explains his vision to have her designs mass-produced, Ichi flatly refuses to take part in "fast fashion", preferring to honor her grandmother's legacy by sticking to her designs. However, as Fujii continues to visit Ichie hoping to change her mind, he gradually comes to understand her philosophy and the meaning of her work. At the same time, Ichie begins to find her own outlook change as she starts to confront her own fears about designing her own work.
