I made a special order of indigo cotton Happi to a customer, Pauletta who is interested in Japanese culture.
" Happi " is a traditional Japanese straight-sleeved coat that artisan and fireman used to wear. 

I did lots of free style Sashiko stitches.
I think red and white curvy and straight lines of stitches are complimenting each other.

Pauletta is traveling Paris right now and wearing it while she is there.  I can't wait to see her photos of Paris.
