Sewing the Curve
by Jenny Rushmore of Cashmerette

$42.00 each

Sewing the Curve: Learn How to Sew Clothes to Boost Your Wardrobe and Your Confidence by Jenny Rushmore is a “learning to sew” book for beginners, with patterns specifically created for Cashmerette’s target audience, curvy women.  Unlike Jenny’s first book Ahead of the Curve that focuses on learning to fit a curvy body shape and is geared toward sewists with some sewing experience, Sewing the Curve is a book for new sewists with zero or minimal sewing experience.

Learning to sew your own clothes can be utterly life changing.  Forget squeezing into ill-fitting garments which aren’t to your taste, or struggling to find anything in your size—once you can sew, you can make a whole closet of clothes, in any style or fabric, to fit your body.  But learning to sew can be intimidating if you’ve never picked up a needle, and even more so if you’re not in the size range of a lot of beginner patterns or sewing books.  Having to learn sewing skills AND learn how to make patterns bigger can be overwhelming, and if you’re coming to sewing to help you feel better about your body, it can even end up making you feel worse.

Sewing the Curve: Learn How to Sew Clothes to Boost Your Wardrobe and Your Confidence by Jenny Rushmore will teach you how to sew a closet of gorgeous garments.  Beginner-friendly, this book will take you from threading your machine to completing your first garment that fits and expresses your personal style.  And, it comes with 6 patterns (worth over $130!) in sizes 12–32 and cup sizes C–H, so you can practice and master new skills on patterns made for bodies just like yours.

Sizes 12 – 32, Cup Sizes C – H

The patterns are also available as digital downloads (in print-at-home and copyshop file versions, which work as project files), using a download code contained in the book.
