Episode #63: Jenny Rushmore

December 21st, 2015 · Comments

On today's episode of the podcast we're talking about starting an indie sewing pattern company from scratch with my guest, Jenny Rushmore. Jenny is a body positive sewing blogger and she recently also became a sewing pattern designer when she launched her company Cashmerette Patterns which creates curve-friendly patterns in sizes 12-28 and cup sizes C-H. Originally from the UK but now living in Boston, Jenny learned to sew at 30 and it transformed her life, leading not only to a new found body confidence but a change in career. Jenny is passionate about helping curvy and plus size women feel fantastic by learning to sew clothes that fit well and look great.
