A Cashmerette Holiday Tea Party Recap

Last weekend, we threw our first ever holiday tea party at our studio in Boston. There was tea, there were pastries, there were fabric remnants and samples to be touched and tried on, and there was so much sewing talk!

We had a blast getting to know curvy sewists from around New England, and in typical fashion, were too busy talking sewing to snap enough pictures. Here are a few moments we did capture.

Cashmerette founder Jenny Rushmore chatted a bit about what’s in store for Cashmerette over the next year. Most of it is top top secret, but we can’t wait to share it with you! Jenny’s wearing an Appleton Dress sewn up in one of our first-ever kits.

As to be expected, any talk Jenny gives is bound to involve some boob gesturing. Occupational hazard.

Kathy brought a muslin of her Concord T-Shirt to get Jenny’s fitting advice.

She’s using the Cashmerette Curvy Sketchbook to document her adjustments as she perfects her Concord.

Everyone shared about the handmade garments they were wearing, and of course, there was a lot of touching fabric and inspecting construction. Here, Kate is wearing a Springfield Top and a handmade skirt, and Ann is wearing a Montrose Top.

Here’s me (Ayelet) trying out the photobooth before the party started. This is where we do our actual photo shoots, in a back nook of our studio. I’m wearing the new Alcott Dress sewn up in a double-brushed poly.

At one point, we all crammed into the photobooth for a group picture—ha!

Thanks to everyone who came out to our first ever holiday tea party! If you couldn’t make it this time, we’re hoping you can join us for the next one!

    How awesome and what fun!! Visiting Cashmerette in the coming year is definitely on my year’s bucket list. Only in CT – not so far at all. Thank you, Jennie and everyone at Cashmerette for bringing this wonderful gift to all of us curvy ladies 🙂

    You sewists on the east coast are lucky to live so close to Jenny. And, I do not envy your current temps! It’s cold enough here in Phoenix at 46.

Let me know what you think!
