This is a story of a Jacket my good freind Sue wove on her Saori loom, and sewed.
She sent it to me with these instructions " Do what ever you want to this jacket Jill, it really needs something". Little did she know that when she gave me cart blanche that I really took her at her word.
Pieces pressed layed out awaiting a revamp.
I moved the fringed jacket lower front pieces to the jacket's upper top ,cut the sleeve opening ,added two pockets, moved the bold striped front piece now re cut to a sleeve back . The jacket back I ripped the seam and took out 6" and added a off set over lap vent PLUS I made many other changes till…..
so this is the the
Now Sue's beautiful fringes can be seen
And Sue's exquisite Saori fabric she wove is now transformed into a flattering wearable art piece with a fresh shape, two pockets, and raglan sleeves.
Zero waste….This is all that is left of her fabric!
Peaceful weaving, spinning, and sewing classes in the redwwods
