Good Morning CSC! I’m here with the Instagram Roundup!
I’m so pleased to see how many people are increasingly using the #cscmakes hashtag in Instagram. As always, you can also email your creations and I will post them. Just be sure to include the pattern, your chosen name, and your website, if you have one.
I have to get up on a soapbox for a little bit because there was a comment recently that suggested that some people shouldn’t use the #cscmakes hashtag and I want to address that.
The #cscmakes hashtag is an inclusive hashtag. The only limit I impose on it is to not include: garments for pets, non-garment creations (so home decor, stuffed animals, or anything that isn’t worn as part of fashion, but if you wear your stuffed animals, I would totally include it! haha); shots of creations in progress; children or teen garments (the CSC has always been about adult sewing); or cross-posted/double-posted pictures/creations to make sure that everyone gets highlighted equally.
I don’t police who is curvy or police what people choose to post with the hashtag. Any person of any gender and any size can use the hashtag. At the CSC, we have a policy on how we talk about size. If someone wants to use the hashtag, they can use the hashtag at any size. There are always fit issues and fit help you need at ANY size and the CSC is here to help with that. Whether you are a size 8 or a size 30, we encourage you to post under the hashtag if you want to embrace the word “curvy.” Body shaming and body policing have no place here, especially in this roundup. Inspiration can be found at any size.
Now let us see the wonderful curvy people in all their sizes that use the #cscmakes hashtag. You are all fabulous.
