I really wanted a deel, the traditional Mongolian dress. Oyunaa took me to a fabric shop - so many choices! I finally settled on a beautiful purple with flowers. Then, I had to decide on the lining, and the trimming. Then, we took it to the seamstress.

She measured me and then, just a few days later, I went for my fitting.
More measuring...then, a week later, voila! My deel was completed. (left) There was another fabric I really liked, so I decided to have it made into a jacket. When I went to pick up my completed deel, she fit me for the jacket and is now busy sewing it!
