The Future is Now

Perhaps you have read the fashion forecast? I can't comment on the demise of low rise jeans (all I want are jeans that don't gape open at the waist in the back), but the snug-fitting top definitely appears to be on its way out. And I will miss it!

Anyone who sews and alters clothing knows that a wrinkle means that the garment has too much ease for your figure. Yesterday, against my better judgement, I bought 2 t-shirts described by their vender as "perfect fit." I am sure that after a day of wearing them that you will be able to see a horizontal wrinkle form across my upper chest. Yes, they are cutting them with more fabric in the front (it's all about arclength and curvature of the armscye and the sleeve cap).
