Weaving Treadling Options - Shadow Fashion

This is not to be confused with Shadow Weave but is a nice treadling option to try with an overshot treadling. This is one that Barbara Miller, my mentor, taught me during Teaching and Learning through Correspondence (TLC), 1993-1994.

As an option, try Mary Snyder's suggestions for Shadow Fashion.

Shadow Fashion/Barbara Miller

Pattern and tabby

Weave tromp as writ or another treadling. Use tabby for the pattern thread and pattern thread for the tabby.

Shadow Fashion/Mary Snyder

Pattern and tabby (2)

Use 2 picks of tabby between each pattern pick in a finer yarn, one as the warp color, the other in a contrasting color; this should be a good contrast with pattern color.
