Gallery Garments

I've finished sewing the indigo trim to my jacket and wore it to the Greater Victoria Art Gallery today, although I may still add a pocket or further indigo embellishment.   It fits well, is comfortable and drapes nicely, so I am pleased.
'Silk Splendour: Textiles of Late Imperial China curated by Bill Till was showing, as well as the meaningful and fascinating paintings of William Kurelek.
These 19th century Daoist priest robes were favourites of mine.  There were all manner of exquisite silk embroidered garments - and even heart shaped ear muffs!
My simple jacket was in very grand company.

your simple garment would have
been smiled upon by a being
wearing heart shaped earmuffs,
i'm sure.

Thanks, Lesley - I love how stitch is the very nature of connection.

Grace - Love that thought - warms more than my ears.
