Kim McBrien Evans designs clothes she loves and wants to wear, and wants to ensure you feel the same. It takes a combination of creativity, observation, a lot of careful planning, and just a touch of chaos to get from yarn to finished garment and a pattern that suits as many people as possible. How do you design for bodies that aren’t yours? And as makers, how can we feel more confident about the garments we make for ourselves, making a handmade wardrobe that fits our bodies and suits our personal style? 

Join Kim as she talks about all of this and shows how she uses personal fashion illustration templates from mybodymodel.com  to “try on” sweaters before she makes them.
If you wish to play along, you can purchase a personal fashion illustration template based on your measurements at mybodymodel.com

Bio:
Curiosity and exploration is the focus of Canadian knitwear designer and indie hand dyer, Kim McBrien Evans. A lifelong love of colour, texture, pattern, and shape prompted Kim to transition from working artist to textile maven. Her knitwear designs are known for their ability to turn an abstract idea into a wearable reality while simultaneously fitting and complimenting a wide range of bodies. She lives and works in the woods of Central Ontario, Canada.

Her yarn company, Indigodragonfly, is renowned for its vibrant colours, offbeat names, and ever expanding plan for world domination. She is co-author of Custom Shawls for the Curious and Creative Knitter (with Kate Atherley). Her work has appeared in Vogue Knitting, Knitscene, Knit.Wear, Knitting Magazine (UK), A Stash of One’s Own (ed. Clara Parkes), The Sewcialists, Digits & Threads, and Uppercase.

This is a one-time live Zoom Event on Saturday, October 2nd at 4:00pm Eastern, 3:00pm Central, 2:00pm Mountain, 1:00pm Pacific.
