Soutache

This was the only photograph I took of this fine piece of handwork. I wish now I had taken a few more of the beautiful vintage suit. The color caught my eye and the light was shining on it nicely in the old warehouse where it was being sold.

  1. Cool colors. I had to look up what a soutache is as I hadn’t the slightest idea! A soutache is narrow flat decorative braid used in the trimming of drapery or clothing. In clothing soutache is used to conceal a seam.

  2. That is quite a piece of work! Very pretty!
