Check out this sneak preview of the five sewing pattern ideas featured in the upcoming Cass T-Shirt Book of Hacks.

This is a shorty post today, my sewing doves, because I spent last week (June 27-July 1) sewing five garments.

And why was I sewing like a one-woman sweatshop?

Because my lovely sister-in-law was coming Saturday, July 2, to model the five garments for the Cass Book of Hacks, which FINALLY has a launch day…

Once we picked a day for photography, I turned into a sewing machine to churn out those plus-sized samples for her to wear.

Cass Hacks at a Glance

So, in case you didn’t know, Cass is a relaxed-fit T-shirt with only three pattern pieces, making it easy to fit AND fast to sew. It comes in misses (B) and plus (D) size ranges and accommodates bodacious hips up to 70 inches. Sie Macht is big on size inclusivity; we want all the beautiful bodies to wear the Cass.

For more than a year, I worked on the Cass Book of Hacks. It’s an e-book of five hacks you can use on the Cass T-shirt pattern PDF.

Buyers of the book get the Cass pattern, fabric yardage requirements and pattern piece layout, standard pattern and hack sewing instructions with ultra-helpful illustrations, and more.

For the first time, here’s a sneak peek of the hacks.
