Wearable Weavings

I’ve been making handwoven clothing lately…. here’s two recent shirts.  I made them both for myself, weaving yardage and then making a pattern based on a shirt I have that is comfortable on me.  The shirts are both made from 2/8 cotton yarn, and very warm.

The last two images are my “Self Image Skirt,” made from fabric I printed.  The darker layer on top is translucent, and printed with all the things I want to project to the world.  The bottom layer is all the horrible things we think about ourselves that we don’t want anyone to know.  that part was especially hard to do.

    The expression in the third photo keeps making me laugh.

    I really like the skirt I don't remember seeing this item previously.

    Thanks! I'm sure I showed you the skirt…. it's a year or two old already. I like your blog! ;P
