How to Pick a Garment Without a Model for You

How to Pick a Garment Without a Model for You

by Ysolda Ltd Collaborator March 17, 2020

I wasn’t going to put the time, money, and effort into a garment that I wasn’t sure was going to fit the way I needed it and have it sit in my drawer unloved. I knew my body was the body I would continue to have, because, even though I’m non-binary trans, I’m not going to medically transition.

Books in the Store: International Women's Day

by Nuala Fahey March 09, 2020

With International Women’s Day taking place this month, it seemed time to celebrate books produced by women or about women. We have a particular fondness for women being given the space in which to truly shine, perhaps interviewed by a peer, photographed by a fellow woman of colour or in someway supported so that the depth and power of their voice can truly be expressed.

Granton - design details and overview

Granton - design details and overview

by Ysolda support@ysolda.com February 27, 2020

A long line cardigan with pockets is a wardrobe staple and I designed Granton, and its lighter weight sibling Wardie, to take that place in your wardrobe. Designing a basic garment is all about the small details, for Granton and Wardie my driving goal when choosing those details was creating a garment that you’d reach for again and again. Some of the techniques used might seem a bit intimidating when you first read the description, but they’re all used for a good reason, and adding them to your repertoire will level up your handmade sweater skills.
