Judith wearing a Chinese Neckpiece

Southern Chinese costumes are worn in many layers. Each piece is made in sections and assembled into elaborate textile pieces. Judith is showing me how this collar piece is worn. The more decorative beaded and embroidered section is at the back not the front!
Every piece of textile is covered in an extroidinary amount of stitches and folded patchwork.
Breath taking.
Judith is a very creative lady herself and she showed me some of her pieces she has made and her sewing room which is being re-designed at the moment.
It was a lovely afternoon,
Thank you Judith.
