Embody - A Capsule Collection to Knit & Sew

Availability : In stock

Celebrate your body and the art of making with Embody - A Capsule Collection to Knit & Sew as your guide.

Jacqueline Cieslak is a designer, teacher, and maker based in the US. Jacqui’s passion for craft, her knitting and sewing expertise, and her inclusive, welcoming attitude to making coalesce in Embody, a capsule collection of wearable wardrobe staples that you’ll return to again and again.

Empowering makers to create clothes that honour their bodies is at the core of Jacqui’s designing practice, and this shines through in her debut book. Embody consists of three infinitely adaptable patterns — two knitting, one sewing — with bespoke instructions to create customised, perfectly fitted garments designed to be the foundation of any maker’s me-made wardrobe. With included variations resulting in as many as 25 unique pieces from the three cornerstone patterns, this book encourages makers to think of a pattern as the starting point for their own creativity — a skill that will change how they approach any given pattern.

Embody offers a perspective on making which centres versatility, minimalism, and sustainability, both in making and wearing handmade clothes. Along with patterns and styling tips, Jacqui shares insights from her years of teaching capsule wardrobe workshops that will be invaluable to makers at any stage of building their own handmade wardrobe. Celebrate your body and the art of making with Embody as your guide.

The patterns are graded for chests up to 162cm / 64". Includes digital download containing print-at-home sewing patterns and copyshop files (available from 25th March 2021). Please note: Sewing pattern files are digital-only. Printed sewing patterns are not included.
