Add Texture to a Garment with a Variation of Strip Piecing

Photo: Sloan Howard

Although beautiful fabric can always stand alone, sometimes it's fun to play with it and create an entirely new surface. One of Mary Ray's favorite ways is inspired by the work of quilt artist Carol Bryer Fallert of Paducah, Kentucky. It's a variation on what quilters call "strip piecing," a process in which strips of fabric are simultaneously sewn to each other and a foundation fabric. This variation mimics pleats and adds texture to a garment.
