Shown at left is an urohs en Pohnpei, or Pohnpeian skirt. They are machine sewn using an applique method where layers of fabric are cut away to reveal the pattern. The pattern repeats around the back. This skirt is done in the shorter Kosraen style and was sewn by Shrue Kilafwasru Lee Ling. Shrue then sells the skirts locally for thirty-five dollars.
Yonis doing cut-work on an urohs en Pohnpei. The master seamstress does the machine stitching, the cut-work requires less skill and more time. Cut-work only requires occasional intense attention and thus cut-work time is also a time for "sramsram," or social talk.
