When our friend and wonderful designer Lotta told us about this idea, we loved it and could not wait to see it come to life. And Lotta did not let us wait for long: she and all the other great people in the NUSUM studio worked days and nights and days and nights, designing, sewing, taking photos, drawing illustrations and writing self-sewing tutorials until NUSUM CUTure was finally there.
Lotta is convinced that it is high quality fabrics, loving attention to details and fair production that can make designer fashion truly special. At the same time, these quality standards lead to prices that are not within reach for every woman. Lotta would like to change that. Not by outsourcing production to some low-cost venue, but by outsourcing production – to YOU.
Open the book, measure your size, order the cutting pattern in your individual size, choose fabric and sew your new favorite piece by CUTure. For this book Lotta has designed two favorite pieces: a dress and a skirt. The patterns for these designs are part of the book as iron on transfers. All you have to do is to iron the pattern to a fabric of your choice and cut out the pattern pieces. No previous sewing skills needed. Detailed tutorials will guide you – all you need is a bit of patience and a love for fashion.
