The Noragi Project

After bela's suggestion, I thought it would be really nice to make a noragi with my grandma (who was a seamstress) before I left for school. I struggle with being verbose, so here's some pictures.

and the final product:

It's actually just a chino fabric like hiroki does. It worked pretty well, it's got some weight to it.

Took about a week but only because my grandma is so good at making clothes haha!

The patterns were in a book (first two pics) that she had. It was entirely in Japanese so I have no idea what it was or where it was from. But it's pretty much a kimono but cropped to waist length and visvim made it a modern design my slimming the sleeves to more of a shirt-like width. My grandma really dislikes that change lol. She laughed when I told her that vis noragis go for $800 because (she said) farmers back in the day would pay next to nothing for them! Lol. Grandmas on the vis hate train.

Will add more pictures when I get home on the 8th but basically I added a very simple strap to make a sling for my NSW fishtail.

Bought 1" nylon webbing and a plastic strap adjuster like so;

Spent like $15 on it because I didn't want to risk breaking stuff and running out of materials, but realistically you could do it for <$5.
