Woven to Wear Book
Author Marilyn Murphy and several contributors at the forefront of handwoven wearables offer guidance for weaving scarves, wraps, shawls, capelets, and other garments, along with advice for finishing, cutting and sewing the fabric, adding edgings and closures, and combining woven fabrics with other techniques such as knitting and patchwork.
The Woven to Wear designs are influenced by a global melting pot of traditional folkloric costume and ethnic fabric mixes in which silhouettes are roomy, layered, and flowing, and the cloth takes center stage.
Designing to Weave and Sew eBook
Written by Jean Scorgie, this little book originally accompanied the Handwoven Designer Patterns—full-scale paper patterns for garments especially suitable for handwoven fabrics.
This eBook is a very rich resource for all the sewing techniques you really need to make couture garments from your handwoven cloth. You’ll discover:
- How to choose the right weave structure, yarns, setts, and draft for a specific garment
- How to cut out the pattern pieces, matching and placing stripes and plaids and securing edges
- How to reduce bulk in seams and hems
- How to finish, line, and embellish the final garment
- And much, much more.
