Woven to Wear: 17 Thoughtful Designs with Simple Shapes
Thoughtful designs. Simple shapes.
Create unique fabric and garments you'll want to wear again and again.
In this garment-weaver's handbook, author Marilyn Murphy offers guidance for weaving scarves, wraps, and more. She also provides advice for designing garments, cutting and sewing fabric, adding edgings and closures, and combining woven fabrics with other techniques. In addition, nine contributing designers share their working philosophies.
Garment designs in Woven to Wear are influenced by a global melting pot of traditional folkloric costume and ethnic fabric, in which silhouettes are roomy, layered, and flowing, and the cloth takes center stage.
A veteran of the fiber world, Marilyn Murphy is the author of The Weaver's Companion and a contributor to Handwoven magazine. She founded the Textile Arts Centre in Chicago, where she owned and taught at the Weaving Workshop. Marilyn is also a former co-owner of Isis Designs.
