Recognizing a Good Fit

We've all had the experience, when shopping, of wondering, "Are the shoulders too big?" or "Are these pants too tight?". At least, those are my top two questions. Yours may be different, but you get the idea.

(If it's technical discussion of fit issues you want, I refer you to Fashion Incubator, by Kathleen Fasanella, premier patternmaker and exceedingly gracious blog hostess. Of course, over there I am mostly a lurker, the issues being outside my areas of responsibility, circle of influence, whatever. Still, it's fun to listen.)

For the everyday person who is just trying to get dressed, this works:
  • Vertical lines on the garment = too big
  • Horizontal lines on the garment = too small
Yep, it's as simple as that.

Hi Rebecca,

I was reading another blog that I had read in some time and several of the recent posts have been about fashion. I thought you might enjoy perusing it --

What a coincidence, I just happened on that one this morning! Thanks!

And if you have recommendations about homeschool ones, send them to me. A number of my friends read this but are only marginally interested in fashion, what they are really interested in is homeschooling.

How fun. I also ran into the girl talk blog and thought..." I really should tell Rebecca about this". Then promptly forgot. Thanks for the links.
