Another Tibetan Robe


I guess I am working in a series. I started a new Tibetan Robe to work on while I am hand stitching all the facings on the first one. This one is much better. It's not quilted so much easier to work with. I plan to line it with red. It doesn't display very well on a hanger but I'll get someone to model it tomorrow. It already looks very elegant.


These are the two pieces of silk brocade for the shoulder decorations, that I have right now. I am not totally satisfied with either one. I'd like one with red and silver. I'll have to dig deeper because I think I have a couple of pieces that are mainly red.

This second one is turning out great as well!!! I think a red lining will be stunning!

It'll look stunning with the peeps of red lining. I think that 'someone' to model it should be you!

Very nice! I like making things in a "series" too - everything is fresh in your mind and you remember what to do differently next time. Beautiful fabrics!
