The Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbook line was designed exclusively for curvy sewists and fashionistas, to help you design and plan your wardrobe on a figure that looks like yours! They’re available for sale at my microsite.
Do you have great ideas for garments or outfits and want to capture them on paper, but struggle to draw them accurately? The Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbooks are what you need. Each sketchbook features 100 plus size croquis (outlines of a curvy body) which are lifelike and light in colour, which means you can sketch garments on top of them, giving you a realistic and professional fashion drawing.
Please note that the croquis are printed in faint grey so that when you sketch on top of them they recede into the background as you can see in the photos below. There are 100 outlines in the book so there’s plenty of room to try out ideas! As they are faint, it’s not possible to trace them onto other paper as they won’t show through.
There are two sketchbooks available:
1. The Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbook – buy here
This 8.5 x 11″ sketchbook was designed specifically for sewists, with a spiral bound spine to make it easy to lay flat in your sewing space. In addition to 100 plus size croquis, there is space on every page to make notes about your pattern, fabric, construction, alterations and more, and a spot to add a fabric swatch. There’s also a place to record measurements (with room for 6 sets if you’re sewing for multiple people, or your own measurements change), a wardrobe planner with lots of smaller croquis on each page, and a pattern and fabric inventory. It finishes with a directory of online resources for curvy sewists. It retails at $17.99.
2. The Cashmerette Curvy Fashion Sketchbook – buy here
This smaller 6 x 9″ sketchbook was designed for sewists and fashionistas alike, to keep in your handbag for when inspiration strikes! There are 100 plus size croquis, together with space to make notes on the season, occasion, styling and more (it does not have the additional sewing-specific features of the larger version above). It retails at $17.99.
The sketchbooks are printed on-demand at locations around the the world, which means low-cost worldwide shipping whether you live in NYC or Auckland, New Zealand!
