Embody consists of three infinitely adaptable patterns — two knitting, one sewing — with bespoke instructions to create customized, 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 centers versatility, minimalism, and sustainability, both in making and wearing handmade clothes. Along with patterns and styling tips, Jacquelin Cieslak shares insights from 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.
