I especially like how the simple surface embellishment so enhances the basic fabric!

simple - or so you think until you see all the properly cut lines and fine stamping on each piece. multilayered too!

Elegant, and a great deal more work than appears at first glance.

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for the votes but this is not stamped. It\'s stencilled. For more information on the process, please visit\nwodefordhall.com/fakingit.htm

This outfit is based off a highly researched historical prequel to the kimono. She has contributed to the SCA Japanese community at large with her kosode pattern. She does all her sewing by hand, and also enhances the fabric with her down stencils.
