seamless and weaveless vest

Filed under: experimental fashion, seamless vest

This vest is not woven and sewn, but entirely fused. It’s made out of angelina fibers and wool roving.

A unique property of (soft and sparkly) angelina fibers is that the fibers fuse to each other when heated.

By mixing angelina fiber and wool fibers and then ironing the mixture into flat sheets, I was able to make a fabric material that is some what soft, iridescent, and heat fusable to itself.

The fabric was constructed into vest with the help of a small iron… no sewing needed!

cool. how “structural” is it? could you make something more shapely / sculptural with it or is it sort of floppy?

it’s sort of floppy, but can be structural -> it would need support
