wide pattern, narrow fabric
I am planning to make a pair of trousers for myself from handwoven fabric, although this fabric does not yet exist! I have a pattern that I like which is very simple - basically two pieces - but it is designed in expectation of a 60" fabric width and I can't weave a cloth that wide.
It seems to me that the easiest thing to do is to weave double the length that I need to a 31" width, or thereabouts, and then stitch the fabric into a 60" width before I start the pattern, otherwise I will be fiddling about with half pieces and extra seams in the construction stage.
Is this sensible or am I missing something obvious?
Any hints on how to approach this would be very welcome, thanks!
