Hopefully you’ve already picked up by now that the CSC is a body-positive website, where women are free to express themselves and feel great, away from the body-shaming that’s so prevalent in the world. Taking a positive approach has been fabulous for the editors of the CSC – remembering that anything can look good on any figure if it fits, and that it’s all about making the clothing fit your body, not making your body fit the clothing!
As such, we’re committed to sharing posts that are body neutral or positive, and we’ll remove any comments that are shaming or negative about the bodies of our contributors, as we have already done on a number of occasions. As always, we welcome different points of view and feel free to disagree or offer constructive criticism on patterns, sewing techniques or fitting – just not on our bodies. There’s enough to deal with in the outside world, and we hope that this space can be a little respite from all that.
