Another vest with woven bands.
I found it hard to attach the straight woven bands around the curve of the neck on my red vest below (posted on a previous post). With this new one, I tried to weave a curve into the band. To do this, I had to beat one side tighter and then untie my back warp and even up the threads so the next couple of inches would be even to weave. And, I had to keep track of the measurements. The finished curved band was easier to lie flat on the curves.

I like to make an article of clothing or a hand bag by choosing the fabric and then make a band to match using like colors and pick out a weave pattern that will suit. With trim and hand bag handles, I can make short, fun weaving's that are one-of-a-kind and quickly made.
