This means that the sides will be dramatically narrower at
the reed than at the back beam.
The only effect I can see is that you'll be slightly increasing the edge
tensions incrementally from the 23 inch width to the 28 inch width on the
back shed. Because you'll be drawing warp for the majority 23 inch width
area from the warp beam, the wider edges will only get the same amount, but
have to go farther to get to the fell ( This is really getting nit-picking
.... ). Possible results in a long project could be a curved fell, odd
selvedges or nothing at all depending upon the warp and the weave. Just an
opinion, the difference is small so you may not notice anything. Sounds like
a warp that may benefit from rolling it all onto the cloth beam then back
onto the warp beam and re-tensioning it.
