This came out excellent. The fabric I ordered looks even better in person than it did online lol!
I still have about 150cm left of this silk for anyone who wants a bag out of it.
I loved the look of the fabric and took Jay up on his offer to make a bag out of the remnant. It arrived a couple days ago and I'm delighted with it. The silver/grey colour might be gauche to some, but for some odd reason ("taste"??) it really appealed to me. My wife is a a sewer, having made her wedding dress and clothes for the kids over the years, and she gave Jay's work the thumbs up. I particularly had in mind the shingunto koshirae that housed my nidai Hizen Tadahiro katana. In fact, the bag looks so good I almost want to preserve it inside another bag!!!!
Great transaction and another joy of NMB fellowship.
