Embody by Jacqueline Cieslak
THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. Books are expected to arrive March 25th.
From Pom Pom's website:
"Jacqueline Cieslak's commitment to embracing all of our community has won us over completely, so we are publishing her first book, Embody. Jacqui's fundamental design philosophy is that bodies are deserving of clothes that fit perfectly."
Embody consists of three core patterns — two knitting, one sewing — with instructions to adapt them into up to 25 different garments that are graded for chests up to 64 inches. The patterns include full instructions for bespoke fit that reflects whatever you think of as perfect. This book is designed to be the foundation of any maker’s handmade wardrobe.
Jacqueline Cieslak is a designer, teacher, and maker based in Charlottesville, Virginia. She creates designs to empower makers to realize they (and their bodies) are worthy of comfortable, well-fitted clothes that reflect their personal style. 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.
