Straight off the loom, Kereru, New Zealand pigeon.
Sewing a tunic top.
Ooops, the fabric wasn't wide enough for the bodice. But needle and thread (and Daryl Lancaster) to the rescue.
I didn't get the hang of the join to start with (see bottom right of join) but when its done properly its hardly visible, in fact I had to use the embroidery magnifying glass to do the job. And then I realised that most of it will be covered by an outside facing and seam.
And finally, a close up of the fulled diversified plain weave. I studied the pictures in the latest Handwoven magazine and I'm happy with this.
And now I really have to get on to finishing some of these projects and I'll be away for the weekend.
