Emily weaving for the sale

Today Emily began weaving the 7 meters of fabric for what will be a cropped double-breasted jacket, a pattern she designed herself while at UFV fashion school. The lovely pattern you're seeing is an undulating twill which she is weaving with a 50% silk 50% wool blend yarn, half of which is hand-dyed by her.
