Abstract: The aim of this study is to further investigate shapeable stretch woven textiles for fashion, particularly seamless woven fashion (SWF). Based on the same SWF project, the prior study of shapeable stretch textiles has illuminated that shaped woven textiles could be produced by designing different simple weaves and utilizing their distinct shrinkages. For more creative and expressive requirements in fashion design, two types of main compound weaves, i.e., the weft-backed weaves and the self-stitched double weaves, are explored in this study. The structural characteristics and design parameters of the two compound weaves are discussed. The experimental results revealed certain correlations between the design parameters of the compound weaves and the full shrinkages of stretch fabrics. The specimens employing compound weaves exhibit distinctive dimensional and textual attributes, as well as applications in fashion. This research provides further references not only for stretch textile designs, but also for advanced designs in the manufacture of seamless fashion.
