Saori hand woven clothing class at Saori Santa Cruz

Meet Anne. She has woven some beautiful Saori fabric and came to the studio to create a garment out of it.

 It is always scary for many  to look at  the weeks of weaveing one has done  and cut into the fabric when you are not sure and confident  about  your sewing and designing  skills . I think it is always great to try on different styles to get a feel of how they might look on your body type, and with the fabric you are are going to want to use so i like to start there….

  she had sent me a photo of the fabric she wanted to use

 this is  a garment  Anne brought to show that she sewed from another handwoven piece and it was wonderful!

 she tried on maybe 20 looks at the studio...
  and then one made her eyes sparkle so i draped her fabric on her to have a look and it felt like it wanted to be a new tunic/ dress so we now had a plan!
  draped fabric to get a vision
  we started cutting and piecing and consulting and pinning and sewing….

draped and pinned on the dress form

 soon  the  tunic started to take shape….
  pin … sew… try on … repeat!!!!
  we are getting very very close
  then the neck line……and finishing

 and here it is! an amazing  one of a kind design garment which she loves!
