Patterns for fitted felt garments The question I hear most from felters is; Do you have a pattern? Many felters have mastered the seamless resists method of making garments but lack the dressmaking skills to create patterns or templates for garments that are fitted and shaped. By using your own measurements at standard dressmaking points we can translate those details into a template that can be used over and over again. The type of garments you can make are only limited by your imagination. Plus 2 bonus books: Shrinkage Rates How to calculate them accurately. Synchronicity An exhibition of evening gowns in felt and silk.

An inspirational and practical book on how to interpret and collaborate on different themes in textile art. With foreword by Marie-Therese Wisniowski, who runs Art Quill Studio. This stunning collection showcases the work produced by renowned textile artists Els van Baarle and Cherilyn Martin, and explores how even when working from the same starting point textile art can produce a myriad interpretations of shape, form, colour and technique.

For each of the themes the authors have provided a personal interpretation of the work and a description of the techniques they used, along with step-by-step instructions.
