A peek at some of the embroidery I’m doing on a kimono I made (a little crazy, since its basically just a dressing gown, but at least it’s good practice!)
Crappy picture, but yay, stylized flowers!
like the design, but you might want to add some couching stitches to the petals if you intend to wear the kimono, as long stitches will get caught and pull. the lenght does give the stich a sheen and some oriental embroidery does use those very long stiches, but it tends to be for hangings and things that dont see much wear
Thanks for the tip! I was actually thinking of doing something along those lines, since the stitches are very long :)
thank you :)
Ooh! Pretty! Kimonos are the best!
They are aren’t they! I could just make ten and wear nothing else… too bad the sleeves are a little impractical :D
Omfg, that is so gorgeous! You’re so talented <3
hih, thanks sis :)
