My second blog for 2021 is about my saori weaving cut and sewn into my designs for wearable are…
Let me start with "painting with threads " duster next blog will have more clothing and accessories, but i want to reserve this one just for this duster.
it started back in november I looked through my saved Saori stashed weavings and decided to sew a new coat… first I designed it then made a muslin to make sure it would fit and to make sure I had enough yardage as well then I started cutting out
I wanted gussets but i was running out yardage so I went into my hand woven stash and found some contrasting saori yardage that I ended up using.
then I needed think on the details still incubating….
I added the collar and lapels worked on the lower sleeves another month went by as the piece slowly emerges.
finely it told me " I am done! just 2 days ago I finished it .
the main woven fabric was not one of my favorites at all in fact it was rather ugly to me! ! That is why it seems so magical now! Everyone should just weave lots of yardage any color ! It is only then that you can get past your mind influencing you in its over used stale color combos ! You need to banish those thoughts from creeping in! Never be afraid of color! Color is a room of friends from all over the globe full of diversity and intrigue!
