Woven to Wear
17 Thoughtful Designs With Simple ShapesBook - 2013
Thoughtful designs. Simple shapes.
Create unique fabric and garments you'll want to wear again and again.
In this garment-weaver's handbook, author Marilyn Murphy offers guidance for weaving scarves, wraps, and more. She also provides advice for designing garments, cutting and sewing fabric, adding edgings and closures, and combining woven fabrics with other techniques. In addition, nine contributing designers share their working philosophies.
Garment designs in Woven to Wear are influenced by a global melting pot of traditional folkloric costume and ethnic fabric, in which silhouettes are roomy, layered, and flowing, and the cloth takes center stage.
