All last week I was piecing meisen……
‘Piecing Meisen’, doesn’t it sounds like the title of a novel?
I spent it cutting up the beautiful Japanese ikat fabric, meisen.
You remember meisen, you weave it, print the design, unweave and reweave.
Yep, reweave. For that soft edge on all the shapes. So cool.
I was cutting it into small pieces, then piecing them back together into blocks and finally, into jacket pieces.
The one above ready to be sewn into a jacket.
The one below, not quite yet.
I love this! Because I loose myself in the process.
It’s just me and my fabrics. We’re finding our way, seeing what shapes and patterns emerge.
