Curvy Sewing Gift Guide

The holidays are coming up faster than you can eat all the mince pies, and it’s time for gift buying. Whether you want to give your loved ones subtle hints *ahem* or buy something for a curvy sewist in your life, here are our Cashmerette curvy sewing top picks!

Special sewing tools


I’ve been lusting after a Simflex button gauge for ages! It’s a super simple way to get perfectly spaced buttons on your next Harrison Shirt.

The key to great finishing? Great pressing. A Dritz Tailor Board is an essential of my sewing room.

My favourite scissors are my Ginghers– and these are a fun printed pair that would be a cute gift.

Fantastic fit gifts


The absolute bible of curvy fitting is Fit For Real People: a gift that won’t go unused!

Buying for someone who wants to dive into shirtmaking? The Cashmerette Shirtmaking For Curves workshop will take your giftee from picking tools to sewing on the last button.

What could be more personalized than a dressform that’s made from a scan of your body? A DittoForm would be an amazing gift for the dedicated sewist in your life.

Cashmerette Goodies


Finally, of course, there’s Cashmerette gifts! You could treat your loved one to a fabric & pattern kit that has everything to make a beautiful garment – how about the beautiful polka dot arms Cashmerette Appleton Wrap Dress Kit? For the inspired sewist in your life, the Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbook is a fun stocking-filler. And if your gift-receiver prefers choosing her own gift, then a Cashmerette Gift Certificate could be perfect – they go from $10 to $100 and have no expiry date.

    I have all those things you’ve mentioned already 🙂 BUT I don’t have a Ditto form and THAT would be fabulous. I’m managing with mine pretty good (using the adjustable and the additional foam pad kit) but there would be nothing like a complete body scan I’m sure. 🙂 I love that gauge for buttons – no sewer should be without it.

    The Dritz tailor board is the best $ I spent all year. I have faked it with other pieces of wood until my ironing board resembled the floor of my woodshop. That thing has more points and curves and flats and shapes than you can imagine AND you can put your iron on it and it won’t fall off the ironing board.
    Yes, they are not cheap. Yes, they are well made and worth it.

    Okay, I’d like all of these things for myself, but that button gauge is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! thanks for sharing 🙂

Let me know what you think!
