the cotton loom controlled shibori fabric has been conveniently aged  ;-)  time to cut and sew.
planning on stitching the pleats so that they hold.maybe machine stitching using a contrasting colorto highlight the brazilwood colors. what do you think?

the silk yardage is a bit complicated to place a pattern to take full advantage of the difference in color,various values of ai and kakishibu and texture.
and i need about 5 more cms to do so so that front and back match.i would like to use a sleeveless   peter pan collar pattern  i drafted.

thinking about this pattern for the red cotton shibori fabric.

  1. I like the idea of contrasting stitching. I enjoy seeing the stitching whenever possible. Revealed structure.

  2. Ma ti fermi mai? Splendidi questi tessuti, io non avrei il coraggio di tagliarli!

  3. Yay can't wait to see it-if you haven't already cut it ou: use a 1" seam allowance and hang it for 2-3 days. Then lay it flat and cut again with regular seam allowance. That stops the bias cut fabric from stretching out after being sewn (which makes the seams pucker..). Also, thought you might like this.
