NEW! Get Weaving- original sewing patterns for your handwoven fabrics, by Sarah Howard (co author "Simply Woven" 1986, "Creative Weaving" 2007, "Get Weaving" 2014).
The designs are suitable for a variety of loom widths so if you can weave a scarf they will help you move on to weaving a complete wardrobe. See my booklet "Cutting Without Fear" for ways to prevent your cut fabric from unravelling
Full size pattern (S/M/L/XL/XXL), cutting and sewing instructions included.
Sarah has been a teacher for over 30 years and has inspired and helped many people to begin weaving and making clothes. The patterns are all tried and tested
Thank You Sarah,
My husband was quite surprised to see how easy it will be for me to use the wide bit of fabric that was made for me in 2014. I had it woven as a payback for the use of my Kromski 32 inch Harp. The gentleman was a better weaver than I was at the time and made it for me. Not quite as long as the pattern specifies, and much wider (29 inches) but if I turn it sideways and cut the short version of the pattern out the rest can be made into a matching skirt! BONUS! I will be buying more of your product as the funds come available. Thank you again.
