Amaterasu

This is one of my popular designs, the descending ruffled hem is much sought after. The shorter length at the front makes the legs longer and is suitable for all shapes and heights. If you're wondering what the other one is, it would be the asymmetric hem, which is the next one we'd we working on.

The trick was the print. While there are many methods to add illustrations to the fabric this one is large, so I felt embroidery would be too heavy and not cost effective. In the end we were able to find someone to hand paint the swirls on, since the original swirls are like paintbrush strokes. 

The result is wonderful! The colour is sharp and vibrant. The painter was a bit stressed but in the end he was also happy with the results. The first one was time consuming but the next ones should go smoothly.

The next thing to tackle was the hood, with ears. I had been turned down at another seamstress while requesting an umbreon hood. So I was ecstatic when they said "No problem". The ears do not require any wire as the ears are 3D. 

Overall I am extremely happy with the results.
