Pondering jumpers...

The jumper trend seems huge, and I've the September BWOF, with a jumper pattern which I think I can manage to sew without too much heartache. (See Cidell's really cool version here.)

But...

The deal is, I'm short and plump, and I've a bit of a tummy. I'm pretty sure the jumper will make me look shorter, plumper, and completely shapeless.

So, the smart thing to do would be to go to the mall and try one on.

I've been a bit sewing-uninspired. I had almost finished installing my invisible zipper, and then the zipper pull came out, and I couldn't fit it back. So I had to rip out the entire thing, and now I need to go shopping for an invisible zipper. Bleah!

Sorry about the zipper, that's cruel. I'm having multiple frustrations sewing these days, want to try the jumper (slightly different one) but I'm tall with a tummy and nervous about that... hang in there!

I think it can work. That's the beauty of being able to sew! You can definitely do it.

If you're worried about looking more petite, you can definitly try something with a lower neckline. I think that can make someone look longer. No?
