Our next installment of the Fitting Room Series is a lovely top by Petite Stitchery & Co, the P.S. I Love You Sweater. This series focuses on how the same pattern fits and looks on different curvy bodies. Some of us have similar shapes but very different sizes and others have similar sizes that look very, very different.
Picture growing up in Brooklyn, NY and my family’s house with opened doors for all to come through, to eat, share and show Thanks. We didn’t do just turkey… PUHLEASE! On the table: jerk and curry chicken, beef, pork pernil, fried and boiled plantains, seafood dishes and at least 5 different rice and beans versions; PLUS oh yes the macaroni au gratin!
Today we bring you the first ever installment of a new series we’re calling The Fitting Room! This series will focus on how patterns fit on bodies… meaning a few things. Like today, you might find a few of our bloggers all making the same pattern to compare the fit on each of our very different bodies.
The crisp, cool days of the Fall season brings about the beginning of soft and cozy fabrics, warm colors reminiscent of the changing color of leaves and styles that transition from warmer days to brisk evenings.

You’ll find information about fabric, color scheme ideas, early patterns releases and some inspiration straight from the talented sewists in House of Curves Hangout.
