I bought this beautiful silk robe for 99 cents on eBay. The sash was missing, and although the seller's description was accurate and good, the picture was awful, so nobody else bid.
I used a piece of gorgeous silk brocade in a color picked up from the hand embroidery to make a replacement sash. The original sash was probably turquoise but I didn't want to try to match the colors.
Take a look at this lovely hand embroidery work. The time that went into this!
