Garment Construction Part 1: Handwoven Yardage and Sewing Tips

with Daryl Lancaster

Cutting into handwoven cloth is one of the most distressing hurdles for most weavers to overcome. Yet, for garments that flatter the body, this is a critical part of the process of garment construction. And of course, how much yardage, how wide to weave, how to sett that yardage and ultimately what to make from that yardage are all questions that every weave interested in creating wearable garments has asked themselves.

Great ideas!
Like the other reviews, this webinar has great content, some of which i have not been able to find elsewhere. I am going to be able to use it for sure! I would have given this 5 stars, but the audio really is rough. Review by Diana (Posted on 12/18/2015)
Very informative
I am taking my first steps in creating garments from my handwoven fabric. There is a lot of good information and examples in this web seminar. I plan to get the others in the series Review by Ann (Posted on 8/10/2015)
Excellent I was seeking a class on Sewing with Woven fabric
Really enjoying and learning a lot from this class. The teacher is very clear and down to earth with here teaching. Some parts of the download have a bit if static otherwise I am happy they have this has a download instead of one class to attending. I hope interweave does this with their other classes as well.

Full of good tips!
Someone in my weaving group told me it was good so I DID buy it. There's a lot of good information in here. ...the audio isn't good, but the power point slides say everything that needs to be said and the audio is ok.

There are a lot of good tips in here for someone who is just starting to take weaving to clothing projects; some of these things I knew as a sewer and knitter, but didn't know how to apply to weaving (weaving 'grows' like knitting can do....how to minimize that). I'm eager to watch the next 3 in that series. Good place to start!
