Full Version: Linen Focale Question
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hi,

I'm making a linen under tunic / light weight "summer" tunic and I have a decent amount of fabric left over - perfect size for a focale! The piece I'm using is all "cut edge" with no selvedge, so it's going to fray like crazy. Should I hem it all around to try and stave that off? Or would having the frayed edges be more historical? I'm thinking if focale were made from "left over" bits of cloth, that would seem to be likely. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Adrian
Where we have pictures of scarves being worn, they seem to be quite long and wide, not really a product of using leftover fabric...
my "scrap" (maybe not the best word....) is pretty long. Maybe 18" wide by 48" long (thats 45cm x 120cm).Should be more than enough for a decent sized scarf I would think.
