The Femme Sweater is about celebrating and honouring the women who came before us, who broke the rules and who fought for their place, so that we could have ours. Each sweater will feature 3 women’s names that are hand embroidered by me, Carissa, and with each purchase of The Femme Sweater a $5 donation will be made to a local charity.
This Collections donations will be going to the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre
. They were established in 1974 and they provide counselling, a crisis line and information sessions to offer as much support in a crisis as possible.

The names are stitched onto an oversized athletic sweater, they are a very traditional athletic sweater, sizing is very dependant on your personal style, I am a size 38" bust and wearing a Small (black/cranberry thread) and a Medium (charcoal grey/ peach thread.)
