Finishing off a woven band: when you are 3 turns from the end, cut 2 lengths of string, 6inches long. lay one in the shed of the 1st turn as a loop, 1 in the shed of the 2nd turn as a loop, but pointing the other way. The 3rd turn, pass the shuttle tail one last time and cut it. Feed the tail back through the 3nd loop, and pull the ends through. Then feed the tail through the 1st turn loop and pull its ends through. This locks in the end of the weaving so the band does not unravel.
I'd wear dresses like this all the time if I could. SH: I pretty much agree, although some other historic fashions would be wonderful to wear, too!<---Eleniel wears this kind of thing when she lives in Itlilien.
