As I’ve mentioned yesterday that I attempted to dress Lee in her Hmong outfit that’s made by Mozemoua (Ze). I emailed the pictures to Ze and she gave me a few pointers. I worked on the skirt again this evening, and here is Lee in her Hmong outfit.
Ze mailed Lee a neck piece but we have not received that yet. It’s very kind of her to have done that, I was thinking about getting one for Lee at the Hmong New Year. Thanks again for all that you have done for Lee.
Yesterday I made an attempted by looking at the picture of how a Hmong outfit was worn, and Ze pointed out to me that this kind of outfit you either use just the red/pink slash or just the green slash. The only time that you use both slashes is when you wear pants, but since this is a skirt you only use one slash to go with the outfit. Since Ze sent two slashes, I used both on Lee.
Now I’m wondering, since Lee is wearing a waist band, I wonder if she would need to wear the slash at all. Ze mentioned that you should always wear the sash and it should always come out on the back at least 8 inches down your back. I still have to work on pinning the shirt to make it tighter.
Another thing that I made a mistake on was the apron, it was shorter than the skirt, and it should have been the other way around. Mozemoua explained that the apron should be exactly the same length as the skirt or a bit longer, but never shorter. I also left all the tied strings messy in the back and I should have hid that. According to Ze, the only slash you want to see in back is the red slash. This is my first attempt of dressing Lee in her Hmong outfit last night.
