mending judge
South Dressmaking Shop. A stubborn second-generation shopkeeper tailors a "life-changing outfit."

When I went up the hill overlooking the city of Kobe, there was a shop. A small sign called "South Dressmaking Shop" hangs on it, and it is an old-fashioned Western-style house. The clothes made by the shop owner Minami Ichie always sell out on the same day. It's all handmade in an old-fashioned craftsmanship. Fujii, who works at a department store in Kobe
, approaches Ichie about branding, but she shows no interest at all, as if she is a "stubborn old man". Ichie was satisfied with the re-tailoring and resize of the clothes made by his grandmother, who was the first generation, and a little new work that reused the design of the previous generation. The clothes of the Southern Dressmaking Shop were the only one in the world that lasted a lifetime ? that was the innocent but pure secret that Ichie's mending clothes were loved.

, but Fujii's words that he should want to make a dress that he designed shake something that has sealed Ichie's heart.
