So I don’t have a bunch to show because I’m busy stitching, stitching, stitching. Since I didn’t want to miss the check in I figured I would show the pictures I put in my personal blog last night. Upside I might have the first layer of the yagmurlak (outer lined kaftan) sewn together tonight. And I’m actually kind of impressed that my hand sewing isn’t taking as long as I feared. At this rate I should have the zibin (under tunic), the layers of the yagmurlak (outer lined kaftan) and the caskir (pants) finished by Sunday evening. Or at least that is my hope. I’m hopeful I can finish the yagmurlak by Monday or Tuesday.
I had thoughts about the lining I referenced in an earlier post. It really isn’t any different then the lining we do normally, it’s not really any different than we normally do. It’s just adding a pretty bit of fabric between the outer layer and inner layer. I’m including a pic of an extant piece to show what I mean. But really you still have to sew that fabric to the outer layer the same as if you were just sewing the inner layer to the outer layer. I don’t know if I’m making sense to someone looking at it from the outside of my brain; hopefully the picture will help.
But I was excited last night to post Stitches and my first seam.
