New Wearable Art

The Ann Arbor Fiber Guild's annual Fiber Feast is April 14, and it is a wearable art fashion show, sit-down lunch, and fiber art sale.  I try to have a few new pieces in the fashion show, as well as someyhing on the sales floor.  I have a large roll of a fabulous thick basketweave silk from India, and am making skirts and jackets from it. It dyes beautifully!
The skirts are cut on the bias, but seamed on grain, with elastic in the waist for easy fitting.

The first sample:
There are 6 gores for flare, and the edges of the gores and the hem are fringed. Hopefully, I can take some to Long Beach to sell at Convergence, the conference organized by the Hand Weavers Guild of America.
