We have all been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Warp and Weft collection from Alexia Abegg for Ruby Star Society. Alexia is one of our favorite artists/fabric designers and this is her first foray into designing wovens! This collection is a fun and beautiful selection of yarn dyed woven designs that we cannot get enough of.
Pattern: WIlder Gown, top version
Fabric: Matinee in Dahila
Size Made: Medium
I've made several Wilder Gowns and I love them. I've been excited to make the top for a while and it was oh so easy! The raglan sleeves combined with neck casing means it comes together without any difficulty. If you dislike working with bias tape - this is the top for you!
The hand of these wovens is soft with a slight drape that lends itself perfectly to garments.
I have to admit that the combo of this design/color fabric mixed with this silhouette was a bit too much when I finished. I decided to change out the tie from the same pink stripe of the top to a simple contrasting ribbon. It toned it down a bit. It is still a lot of look that I'm getting used to.
