    Making Stories and Friends Winter 2018 includes 11 gender-neutral garment and accessory designs that we hope work for everyone, regardless of how they identify and express their gender. All garments are customisable in length, and most accessories come with a few variants that allow you to create something that fits exactly how you want it to sit on your body. We’ve also expanded our size range for garments to include 8 sizes.

    The title “Making Stories and Friends Winter 2018” can also be taken literally as Verena Cohrs and Hanna Lisa Haferkamp, the two Making Stories founders, designed half of the collection and asked friends from the making community to contribute the other half. We also wanted to showcase the designs on a variety of bodies and share how we’d wear them in real life, so we stepped in front of the camera ourselves.

    Claire Walls, Clare Mountain, Hanna Lisa Haferkamp, Jessica Gore, Marie Greene, Rebekka Mauser, Sari Nordlund, Verena Cohrs

    Wonderful book

    I really love the patterns! It will be hard to decide which one I will cast on first! And the fotos are so lovely - I enjoy this volume.
