In honor of the first annual Special Fashion Issue of Handwoven magazine (September/October 2011), we bring you this comprehensive manual for sewing with handwovens. Written by Jean Scorgie, this little book originally accompanied the Handwoven Designer Patterns--full-scale paper patterns for garments especially suitable for handwoven fabrics.

This eBook is a very rich resource for all the sewing techniques you really need to make couture garments from your handwoven cloth. You'll discover:

  • How to choose the right weave structure, yarns, setts, and draft for a specific garment
  • How to cut out the pattern pieces, matching and placing stripes and plaids and securing edges
  • How to reduce bulk in seams and hems
  • How to finish, line, and embellish the final garment
  • And much, much more.

You'll find detailed instructions for each step with clear hand-drawn illustrations by Jean for each one. Best of all, Jean tells you which technique works best with which type of fabric, from fine silks and linens to heavier fabrics in bulky wools and novelty yarns. The information and techniques are timeless and never more clearly explained than here.

Designing to weave and sew
Very clear explanations with few words; all I like. Review by Martine (Posted on 4/20/2015)
Love this book!
This has been a life-saver for me. I've been sewing as long as I can remember but I'm new to weaving. Every concept is presented and explained clearly. I refer to the sett chart all the time, and the finishing techniques have been a huge help too. Review by Charla Henney (Posted on 11/18/2011)
