My love affair with Sashiko has extended into wearables done in the decorative stitch (ironically where the quilting style originally came from). I have found some examples I have completed that I wanted to share. For the vest, the pattern is a commercial pattern available from Perpetual Patterns. The main panels are Sashiko stitched cotton. The rest is a variety of Japanese print cotton fabrics.
The belt is again 100% dark blue cotton fabric, fully lined on the same colour. The pattern is one I found in an Australian Stitches magazine.
The shorts are linen from my own pattern.
You can see a little or a lot of sashiko can make an exciting addition to wearables.
