As I have mentioned before, I love, love my Hmong clothes and the colors, but I don't really like the way I look in them. The more and more I think about it, I don't like the head piece on me. I just never liked it on me more than anything. It just does not look right on me. I could do without the head piece.
Hmong clothing, traditional or modern are just beautiful. You can see a few that my mom made for my nieces and sister here. Or for more visuals from Google, look here. Back in the day, women would stitch the patterns on the dress/outfit by hand, but more and more, you find them printed.
Oh yeah, I just completed this little "Color Project" as well with a few other ladies... You can see my colors here. =) And don't forget to stop by the ladies to see what they have for colors. I am excited! I love seeing colors! ♥ Carla, Stacey, Tracey, Heather, Kristin, Janet, Amanda, Rose, Tracy, Rhonda, Lena, Heather A., Veronica, Heidi, Liza, Jenn , Kristi, & Hanne
And if I don't have your name on here, please let me know so I could add you! :) xo, Jean
This also reminds me. . . Dear Sisters (K, L, M, D, & V), We should set up a date, obviously after Mary's post-pregnancy-monthly-fast to do photos in our Hmong outfits with Mommy! :) It has been awhile. I think Thanksgiving might be too much of a hassle. Plus, I think all the little girls will like it too!!! Let me know. =D ♥ J
