More about Jenny and Cashmerette:
Cashmerette began as Jenny’s personal sewing blog in 2010, when she had the profound realization that she didn’t have to change her body to fit clothes – she could change clothes to fit her body. That led Jenny to leave the corporate world after 15 years, and launch Cashmerette, the first modern, body-positive, sewing company, with patterns in sizes 0 – 32 and cup sizes C – H.
Cashmerette has since grown to empower curvy sewists to find confidence through online workshops, a popular membership program called Cashmerette Club, and two books: instant best-seller “Ahead of the Curve: Learn to Fit and Sew Amazing Clothes for your Curves”, the first body-positive book focused on helping curvy sewists learn how to alter patterns to fit, and "Sewing the Curve: Learn how to Sew Clothes to Boost your Wardrobe and your Confidence", the ultimate guide to sewing for beginners which starts shipping on 14 November 2023.
Jenny’s work on Cashmerette and body positivity has been featured in publications including People magazine, The Guardian, and the Huffington Post.
Originally from Scotland, Jenny has lived in 9 countries, and is now proud to call Boston, MA home.
