Stellar

The drape on this splendid cape is refined. Worn as shown, it appears with a collar and rests on easy shoulders.

All cotton, woven in twill, and ready for the…

Liz spins her yarn from her cherished mohair goats, and adds lovely bits to them – in this case some vintage gauze. I put this piece together with some silk from Habu Textiles and then added…

Cloak Red Twill

The buttons are sewn through and make this cloak wearable and versatile. In the beginning of August I showed this handwoven cloth right off the loom. Worn with the buttons at the shoulder this is more of a poncho; with the bottons at the back, the deep front drape is most elegant. For trying on,…
