This simple pinafore dress utilises centre and waistline seams to enable effective colour changes. The black and white version is woven on one warp, half the length woven in black and half in white. The multi- coloured version is woven on two separate warps for greater choice of colour and has a single pocket, cut sideways, to contrast warp and weft.
Get Weaving patterns have been specifically designed for narrow, handwoven fabrics. Pieces are all of a similar width and by making maximum use of the selvedges there is very little wastage. By using our layout plans and cutting and sewing tips you will have the ingredients to turn your individual, hand woven fabrics into stylish, everyday clothing. Don't be too scared to cut your fabric- we have a Secret Weapon to share with you!
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
