Jacqueline Ceislak has been making waves with her clever, creative, and size inclusive knitting patterns, and Embody: A Capsule Collection to Knit and Sew is her first, magical book.
Empowering makers to create clothes that honour their bodies is at the core of Jacqui’s designing practice, and this shines through in this book. Embody contains 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.
The collection offers a perspective on making which centres versatility, minimalism, and sustainability, both in making and wearing handmade clothes. In addition to the three cornerstone patterns, Embody contains an essay, ‘Making To Honor Your Body’, and Jacqui shares her styling tips and expertise from years of running capsule collection workshops. Celebrate your body and the art of making with Embody as your guide.
The three patterns in this gorgeous book are the Deren Sweater, Elsom Shawl, and Woolfork Top/Dress. You can see more about the knitting patterns on Ravelry here.
