Adventures in Historical Tabletweaving: footwear

Munich (EPAC p. 144)Cards: 9/21Width: 6mm/12mmLength: 60cm/60cm For my first band I picked the pattern in EPAC which used the fewest cards. It is from a linen band from a 15th century chasuble. The design is a simple geometric consisting of diamonds and diagonal bars and I think it would not be out of place on 12th century garb. The purpose of this project was to make garters for my dark blue woolen hose. The warp, ground weft and brocade weft are all of Schappe silk from fibreholics. Since this was my first band and I wanted to tax my brain as little as possible, I brought the brocade weft all the way to the edge of the band at every pass ("Type 1" turn in EPAC).

The band went well once I got going. The second band used 21 cards. The band went pretty well but there are two aspects I'm unhappy with. The other issue I had was that the weft tension varied wildly, so the width of the band fluctuated from about 0.9 to 1.3 cm. Free Historical Costume Patterns.

Gérard Lognon: quand le plissage est art.

Le monde du textile regorge de métiers et de techniques souvent méconnus du grand public. Et c’est là tout l’intérêt de notre blog ! Alliant technique, tradition et créativité, les métiers d’art du textile sont en général réservés au secteur du luxe et de la haute couture et c’est surement la raison pour laquelle, leurs secrets sont très jalousement gardés. Gérard Lognon, lui, est plisseur. Depuis son arrière grand-mère (sous Napoléon III), le métier se transmet dans sa famille pour faire, aujourd’hui, de cet artisan la quatrième génération de plisseur.

These directions are for a right handed person, if you are left handed remember to reverse all directions. Running stitch is worked from right to left. Figure 1 Oversewing is worked diagonally from left to right. Figure 2 Herringbone stitch is started at the top of the row.
