Jacqueline Cieslak is a designer, teacher, and maker based in the US. 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.
Embody consists of 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.
