Woven to Wear
Handwoven wearables are hot! Woven to Wear offers 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. Softcover, 144 pages; Interweave Press
