Woven pockets

Here are two, not so great photos, of what I’m working on at the moment. The chambray peasant skirt with soari woven pockets is something I am developing for my Etsy shop. I love this skirt. It is super comfortable and very cool for summer. The only problem with this one is that the weave on the pockets is too thick for the chambray, so back to the loom. I am going to try weaving the pocket out of linen or cottolin. Maybe even some recycled sari silk.

The linen “elephant” pants are something I made for myself. They are kind of like very loose bloomers. I work at home, so comfort comes first. The pockets are woven out of strips of linen and wool roving with a cotton warp. I really like them, but I had to alter the the pattern I had adapted from an existing pattern. It had the crotch hanging very low. Kind of like the old M.C. Hammer pants. Not a good look or at all comfortable. These were a little more labor intensive, so not sure if I will have them in the shop or not.

I also am working on some slow stitch and block printed pockets. Will post pictures when they are done. If any of you sewists out there are interested in one-of-a-kind pockets for your sewing project(s), contact me: val@casamarengo.com.

Have a great day everybody!
