“Ahead of the Curve” has officially launched in the USA and worldwide!

It’s finally here: the USA launch of “Ahead of the Curve: Learn to Fit & Sew Amazing Clothes for your Curves“. Thank you all SO MUCH for your amazing support in pre-orders which led us to being #1 on Amazon in sewing for months on end, and caused the need for a second reprint before we even launched!

As of today, November 9th, “Ahead of the Curve” is available to buy immediately, directly from us (which will be a signed copy, sent from the USA), or from a local retailer – see a list of worldwide retailers here.

If you pre-ordered, you’ll be receiving your copy any day now! And there’s so much to look forward to:

  • In-depth fit tutorials with “before” and “after” photos of dozens of fit adjustments
  • 5 BRAND NEW Cashmerette patterns, in both printed format (in an envelope at the back of the book) and digital download format.
  • Tons (and tons!) of tips, motivation and pep talks to make sewing a body positive experience.

    Hi, I received my hard copy of the book and wondering how I can access the digital pattern files?
    Thank you,

      I was so excited to try the patterns and apply the different altercations, I steeped the information I was looking for.

    My lovely hubby gave me a copy of Ahead of the Curve for Christmas. It looks amazing and so clearly explained. I love sewing my own clothes but really struggle with fitting tops. So I was really disappointed to find that I am just below the size range for the beautiful patterns inside the book. According to your size calculator I am a 12D bust, 14 Waist and 10 hip. I think I can manage grading down a few sizes on the hips but don’t even know where to start on bodices…i would be so grateful for any advice!

    1. Hi Zoe – the good news is, you do fit in the bodice sizing! The book patterns come in US sizes 12 – 32 (UK 16 – 36), and you’re a 12 C/D (US) according to the calculator, so simply make the 12 C/D as it is in the book.

      For the hip, for most dresses, or garments with negative ease, you can likely get away without grading and simply making a 12 – in a skirt you’ll just have a bit more swoosh than intended.

    I’m still looking for a pdf of the patterns in AHEAD OF THE CURVE. I tried tracing and ended up with a mess. Thank you! Ellen Rumpff

    1. Hi Ellen – go to the section “How to use this book” and is has a link and password to download the PDF patterns.

Let me know what you think!
