This week was dedicated to completing my textured weave halter neck. Throughout the Project I’ve used many fabric samples including hand knit, machine knit, weave, distressing denim and paper. I thought that the weave was a really interesting texture and visually pleasing so I decided to create a bigger scale using rope. The Materials used included recycled mesh shower sponge, recycled denim, recycled fruit bags, recycled bracelets, recycled shower bag, recycled fabrics, ribbon, sequins, embroidery thread, wool, sewing thread, beads, knitted wool material and many more.
I think this garment shows have versatile I can be, as I didn’t use a pattern, just my design. I wasn’t sure completely how I would secure the weave together but I hand stitched the bottom and the top, gathering it in at the neck and the waist.
