Handwoven wearables are hot! More than just patterns-discover 17 designs and plenty of ideas for unique fabric and garments you'll want to wear again and again.
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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a nice book--lots of pictures, and good tips for many different types of edging and finishing. All in all, the clothing designs were fairly uninspiring...mostly redos of the 1970 'vintage' varieties. There were several scarf projects (I don't really consider them in the 'wearable' category), a couple of jacket styles (again, the "vintage" type), and some items with fringes (I didn't like fringe 40 years ago, and I don't like it any better now). However, it's a nice book to introduce newer weavers to handweaving classics, plus it throws in a few more "inspired" ideas for the more adventurous fiber artist. Mostly 'thumbs up'.
Getting ready to make a scarf. I am new to weaving.
I may go back and buy a hard copy. I tend to mark my books up and this has some great ideas particularly on finishing hems and necklines.
