Hmong Clothes Paj Ntaub Cog Ci

Hi Everyone! Paj ntaub cog ci is trending again and I’m ecstatic! This outfit took me so long to make! I finished just in time to wear it to Hmong New Year. Honestly, it’s worth buying over making since I spent so much time sewing on sequins. Unlike the other outfits in my Hmong Outfit Series, this outfit doesn’t belong to a specific region. Paj ntaub cog ci was popular in the late 80’s and 90’s and showcases a period of innovation, transition, and adaptation.

My cousin’s outfit reminded me of the outfits that I wore when I was younger. I had various Hmong outfits made out of the Thai skirt fabric material and I wanted to make an outfit that had elements of the past, incorporated my favorite colors, and that was more fitted.

Paj ntaub cog ci consists of embroidery and sequins. There are different patterns – some with more embroidery than others. Sequins are applied in the empty http://cialisonline.net/ spaces. Sometimes lace is added on top of the borders surrounding the embroidery. I chose to omit the lace to have the blue stand out. I also took out the little triangles for two main reasons – I’m lazy and I don’t like them poking me. The outfit looks clean, simple, and there’s more focus on the blue and sequins.

I made my shirt the traditional style just not as loose. This was because I thought that the fitted style with princess seams would be more difficult.  Since it would require me to align the diamonds at every seam and I had a limited amount of fabric to use.Then, I ran into another problem with the print of the fabric. I wanted the diamonds to run vertical and not horizontal because it give the illusion of being slimmer and if it ran horizontal I would look wider. So in the end I still had to align the diamonds. Usually with traditional shirts there isn’t a seam across the shoulders but if you look really closely on my shirt you can see the seam. I didn’t really care about the pattern matching super closely where I attached the sleeves though.

Originally I wanted a 3/4 sleeve shirt but I made the mistake of cutting too much off of my sleeve embroidery.  Do you see a trend here? This entire process was a cycle of failure and compromise with way more patience than I thought I possessed. So I had to settle for a long sleeve shirt. Additionally, I made the shirt a little to small for me. Despite the mistakes along the way, I’m super http://generic-cialis.net/ excited to wear this outfit to Hmong New Year. I’m pairing it with the hat that I featured in this post.

Thank you for reading! I can’t wait to show the finished princess hat that I made to go with this outfit too. I’ll showcase it with a different outfit though. Something that is different than what I usually go for. I’m trying to stay away from sequins for a while  squeezing in some last minute projects before the year is over because I won’t be able to sew for a while.
