Now What?

So "The Lady In Red" warp rests and prepares for the Chilliwack Exhibition. It decided that it will present itself as yardage this year rather than as a finished item sewn from hand woven. This change of plans came about while I was doing the pressing after its wash. Sitting there on a shelf beside me was the almost forgotten earlier yardage, "Rainbow" warp. The Rainbow demanded to be made into a garment first, having been woven first and "Lady In Red" gave up her place in the lineup --- for now.

So far the Rainbow top looks like this:

Neckline for tabard vest

Just the neckline and shoulder seams are completed, but I'm very happy with how it looks so far. I have several different plans mulling about in my head about how to finish the rest of it. We'll see which one wins.
