OMG the Haori is back!




I started this about a year ago...


I think that the reason I pooped out on it is because:


a. I find sewing garments demands more precision than I enjoy


b. my inner perfectionist is not totally jazzed with the brown fabric (undissolved dye left weird red spots ans the cotton itself could be of better quality)


c. I kind of froze up on putting on the metallic decorative stitching


This project is the second of a potential series of 4, the first was fire, this of course is earth and air and water have never been begun.


I'm not sure they ever will be, but I have this one half done so it might as well get finished.


I just started the metallic stitching on the brown outer layer (the green will eventually be the lining)


Although its really hard to see in this picture, the metallic is a good call, it livens up the brown fabric considerably. So far I've gotten one sleeve done...
