The objectives of this study were: 1) To study and analyze the art of weaving flower-patterned silk cloth, “Dok Peep” fabric; 2) To design and create women’s clothing from the woven “Dok Peep” flower-patterned fabric for working-age women aged 25-45 years. The study applied knowledge of weaving, the art of weaving “Dok Peep” flower patterns, clothing design principles, and sustainable fashion design principles. The emphasis was on utilizing fabrics as the primary material, reducing the use of other materials, maximizing the utility of woven fabric, minimizing fabric waste, employing pleating techniques; and 3) To assess the feasibility of creating women’s clothing using “Dok Peep” flower pattern woven with cotton threads or artificial silk, collaborating with expert tailors. The evaluation included a performance appraisal form covering two elements: the conceptual element and the components of the prototype product achieved. The research findings revealed that the inspiration for weaving “Dok Peep” flower-patterned fabric was derived from the auspicious “Dok Peep” plants bestowed by royalty in Phitsanulok Province. The fabric was woven using silk or synthetic fibers, employing a weft-style Mudmee technique known as “Sen Phung” (upright thread). The fabric’s pattern was divided into three parts: the base color section (e.g., purple, yellow, blue, pink, and red), the decorative pattern section, and the “Dok Peep” flower pattern using white threads. The creation of the prototype clothing collection resulted in 10 sets, including dresses, skirts, and pants. The garments are remarkable with impeccable tailoring and distinctive pleated decoration techniques showcasing the signature woven “Dok Peep” flower pattern. The apparel is versatile for various occasions (mix and match). This approach proved suitable for creating clothing and apparel from woven fabric with a “Dok Peep” flower pattern, given its wearable nature. It effectively presents the artistic features of woven materials in practical applications.
