A Journey with the Woodland Weavers & Spinning Guild’s Garment Study Group: From Pattern Selection to Finished Garment
Presenters: Judi Pulver and Margaret Jager
Judi and Margaret gave us a great look into making garments from Handwoven fabric, or any loosely woven type fabric. The following pictures and screenshots will give you a good amount of information.
Clicking on the pictures will enlarge them.

|Fabrics waiting to be sewn into a jacket.|
If you are interested in woven clothing Judi recommended following Sarah Howard.
She is on Etsy, Instagram and Facebook.
|This is a Handmade spun and woven Alpaca Jacket that a friend of Margaret's had made years ago.|
|Hard to see, but the outside is all fuzzy from wear, interesting to see the inside pattern.|
|Margaret explained the techniques she used.|
