The ULTIMATE COCKTAIL PONCHO takes about
40 hours of actual labor to complete. After the loom is theaded
and the garment is woven, the finishing begins. This entails
sewing in a silk facing and handstitching it down. Then the
dress is turned right-side-out on a dress form and the bottom
fringe is trimmed. Once that is completed, every fringe on
the dress (approximately 2800) must be hand knotted and manicured
for loose threads.
