In September of last year my weaving guild’s study group, Exploring More, decided to look at sewing a handwoven garment. We have also decided to have a little fashion show for the guild at the February meeting so I guess that I better get started!
To start, I’ll talk about the yardage that I am using which I wove it in 2012; and looking back at the blog, it seems that I have never shared anything about it. So I am going to piece together its story from the photos and my memory.
The warp is based around this large cone of variegated cotton. The cotton is white, rusty brown and green, and is surprisingly pretty. I added stripes in brown chenille and a shiny rose boucle rayon.
