 Curvy girls unite! Join Cashmerette pattern designer, Jenny Rushmore for a full weekend of sewing & fun. Students will learn how to fit & sew Jenny's popular Harrison. This class is perfect for anyone wanting to get into garment making or those that need some help getting the perfect fit.

About the Harrison Shirt

Finally, the answer to your prayers: a fitted button-down shirt that doesn't gape over curves! The Harrison Shirt is designed with double princess seams for a uniquely curve-friendly fit and all the features of a classic shirt, including a two-piece collar, yoke, and placket, separate button bands, and buttoned cuffs. This pattern looks equally pretty in crisp Oxford cottons at the office or cozy flannels for playing in the snow! 

A little about Jenny,  in her words:

"I started sewing at the ripe old age of 30, but now I’m totally obsessed. It turns out that sewing is not only shedloads of fun but it’s also creative, technical, sociable, and takes over your life if you don’t watch out. You can read more about my journey and what I’ve learned here.

As a curvy woman, sewing has been central to my journey to body acceptance, not to mention transforming my daily wardrobe with garments that fit me well and reflect my personality. To reach even more plus size sewists, I partnered up with other amazing curvy bloggers to found the Curvy Sewing Collective, where you can find more inspiration, tips and sewalongs.
Now, I’ve taken a step further and launched Cashmerette Patterns, the first line specifically designed for curves, in sizes 12 – 28, and cup sizes C – H. I’ll be launching a range of garments, all thoughtfully designed to be comfortable and stylish. Your dress size doesn’t limit your creativity, so why should it limit your wardrobe?"
