I guess, it's all about showing what ever you have, but it's just not my style and time.
I wanted to make an elegant, pencil skirt, that would finally cover my knees.
I decided to try on my new 8 shaft loom, create some interesting pattern that I couldn't make on my 4 shafter.. Experiment worked, and it looked really interesting at the end - see it for yourself. Five colors for the warping treads, I picked to be neutral, trying to avoid too bright colors for skirts or coats.
But yes, I have in plan few projects with more bright colors.
Weaving didn't take so long, as expected, couple of weekends, but again, it was the designing and sewing that took some time. At first, I had completely different shape in mind but when I discovered, at the end, that I will not have enough fabric to make it, things started to complicate..I created my pattern by draping and when I lay it over my fabric, there was no enough for the A line skirt
Fortunately, I still had one long and narrow piece of fabric that I made last year.
Again, I have to thank "Diana" my mannequin, for constructing such a nice fitting garment!
This is one of the first design attempts to create an garment with a use of this fabric:
