Abstract: This paper proposes approaches to create shaped woven textiles (SWTs) for seamless woven fashion by designing diverse simple weaves and applying their dimensional changes. A widespread stretch material (spandex) was selected as the main fillings for shape changes. The research introduces the four design parameters of simple weaves for stretch fabrics. Twenty types of specimens in two different configurations of the stretch fillings were then produced. Correlations between the four parameters and dimensional changes of simple weaves were investigated. With respect to dimensional and textural changes, experimental results indicated corresponding divergences of specimens made by the different simple weaves and two types of configurations of fillings. By integrating these shape changeable weaves via jacquard designs, several practical creations illustrated the sculptural capabilities of shaped textiles and aesthetical attributes. This research contributes to the integrated design and manufacture of future woven textiles and fashion.
