Inside a Splendid Embroidered Vest
This post is purely eye candy – no “how-to” here, just a chance to revel in some really spectacular embroidery.
I found this child-sized embroidered vest at a flea market. It’s Mongolian (I think) embroidered lambskin. This means the fur on the inside is the wrong side of the embroidery, and the tail ends of the embroidery is hidden in the fur on the inside. Sadly, this piece is in fragile condition: It’s dried out and can only serve as inspiration.
