Designing and sewing clothing from Saori weaving

Robin has been asking me for several months to have a  Saori sewing day class with some of her finished Saori yaradage and pieces but I  was to swamped,  yesterday we finely had a whole day to play and sew and drape and here are Robins new Saori tops! Saori Santa Cruz studio classes

measuring and cutting 

From  Saori hand woven yaradage,  to top.

 pinning  and layout
 Trying it on and pinning a few times it is looking sooooo good.
 HER NEW TOP .  So very happy.

loosely followed this new Saori book

I do not read Japanese but the diagrams were easy to follow. I have this new saori book it for sale My etsy shop

 Second decision we are making  a vest.
Here is Robin deciding on which of her Saori fabrics to use a few
weeks prior

Well into her next piece of  cutting flipping and piecing and playing......

and sewing

and trying on

more sewing

looking great!

  All done , absolutely gorgeous  and the colors are so rich.
Robin did not want to cut the the loose wefts in the front I love that look, good idea !

Cleaning up I found some scraps, so I thought of a pocket .I pinned it on , one last detail .Robin is going to sew it  on at home.

Peaceful weaving...and sewing in the redwoods
