Today, we’ll be sharing a tutorial on Hanfu make, by Midnoonight: how to make a Tang dynasty shawl – Peizi.
In the Tang Dynasty, Shan + Qun + Peizi is a classic three-piece set for girls. They can be worn in many ways and are very easy to match.
A Video explanation is available at the bottom of the article.
Let’s confirm the shape of the Peizi, by drawing a rectangle and curving the sides of the rectangle to form the shape of a boat.
Some decorations can be added to the Peizi, such as a Yinluo (璎珞) pattern.
The fabric used is narrow floral silk.
Cut & Sew up
Align the ends, draw a curve according to the paper pattern, and cut it out.
As the fabric is narrow, the edges do not need to be hemmed, just hemmed where the ends have been cut.
Sew and iron smooth.
Now it’s time for Yingluo decorative stitching, let’s call it a 1Y1 formation.
Calculate the approximate amount of material to be used.
Mark each cycle 2.5cm apart on the fabric.
Make the “1” first, noting that the last bead is used to block the garnet, and the thread is threaded this way.
Then make “Y”, where the Y’s are divided by a bead, and the thread is threaded this way.
At the end of each 1 or Y, sew one stitch forward the length of one pearl, tie a knot and reverse the stitch for extra security.
Finish, the floral silk is understatedly luxurious, the pearls glisten and the irregular garnets are just the right balance, luxurious without being ostentatious.
