This cosy, unlined bodywarmer has overlapped seams which lie nice and flat and can be topstitched to finish. Dyed, unspun fleece is inserted into the warp and beaten in to create a lovely fabric- no spinning required! A great way to use up lots of left over fleece of tops. Bound edges reduce the bulk of the fabric and make zip insertion much easier
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
