So I am flipping through a friend’s copy of Vogue Sewing. I am reading a section that talks about how to deal with fitting problems or making a pattern fit your body right and I stumble across this nugget of wisdom:
“If you are ten or twenty pounds overweight, you could try to lose weight. Even a loss of five pounds could help to eliminate potential fitting problems.” (Source: Vogue Sewing, p.20)
So there you go folks. Having problems with the right fit? Simple. Just lose weight.
As a side note…can you imagine a knitting pattern saying…”if the waist shaping is a little tight around your tummy, sounds like it is time to get your lazy self back to the gym…oh, and you should stop eating those Girl Scout Cookies too.”
