Fitting my new pink sweater: Can rocking a plus size blouse be termed fashion

Hello Hive

    How do you check out the fitness of ready to wear clothes in stores and have you ever bought something larger than your size 

Its is Halloween season again and i can love some lovely, scary and creative mask in our dear needlework and dit communities.

I guess I am the only one still left out as I haven't giving thorough read into the story Halloween means and that makes me so oblivious like someone living in a cave. I might have put up something for Halloween too for an entry and enjoy the season with everyone.
Maybe a story from any of your post might help, so am hoping in for some good read.

In the mean time I found this lovely piece of a sweater from a store and checked out how I can make this mine.

I haven't been on my sewing machine for a very long time now, alot of other distractions have kept me busy and I truly miss sewing, something I practically do everyday.

Everyone loves to buy new things, even seamstresses who sew new cloths loves to buy some ready to wear in some instances.
That is exactly what happened with this sweater.

I found it in a store and couldn't resist the color and beauty, thereafter I purchased it for $4 but it wasn't my exact size...

I have seen people put on big shirts and plus size outfits in the name of fashion.
Sometimes it is beautiful and other times it is totally weird I have never tried it, my outfits are usually right fitting.

Maybe there is no need to do any fitting for this sweater, but the armhole is quite large and out of place.

Using a size chart to buy an outfit can be so tricky.
Every other measurements might fit except the must or something else and we are left with an entirely new job to either slim fit or loosing the stitches to work it out all over again.

Wanting a perfect fitting sweater I decided to take all the measurement over again comparing them with my exact body measurements.

Shoulders

Armhole

Bust measurements

Waist

After taking all the measurement I realizes I have to loosing the stitches and start sewing all over again with the proper measurements..


And of course not having a seam reaper handy made me cut some holes into the sweater

This is one lovely sweater I didn't want to let go and am sure that some of us had such experiences...


And sometimes we have to recycle a top into something new entirely.

Thank you for reading and hope we all enjoy the Halloween season ❤💖

You got heaters and they expensive to use, we do not have access to houses with heaters here and have to rely on sweaters... What a dilemma we are in

That's totally true, our weather doesn't get as cold as yours but my health doesn't tolerate the slightest cold, so even in this slightly cold weather I try to take caution....

I loved the final result, I think it suits you very well and you can see that it is quite a comfortable fabric. Is it cold where you live? 🤔

By the way, I apologize if this is asking the wrong thing, but I see that behind you there are shelves with products, do you have a small home business? It's interesting, I'm curious to know what a small store is like in another country 🤗

Hola amiga.

The garment looks very nice, it looks like new.

I just warn this kind of sweater in cold weather. I once went into an atienda and bought two, open and with zippers. They fit me with long sleeves too. I have worn them that way ever since.

I really like your sweater, the color, the pattern. With the adjustments you look spectacular. Enjoy it.

This is my first purchase of sweater, and even though it didn't fit I was happy that am a seamstress and could just adjust it to what I like .

Am sure you have a great sense of taste an must have bought some beautiful sweaters too.

Thank you for dropping by.

From a ready made sweater to a working sewing project. 😄

I love the love of sewing in you. I know you never mind making adjustments and you always make it look so easy to do. That is such a pretty warm sweater and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it even more now that it fits to your liking ~
