Picture this....2 women go into work early just to try on sweaters from the trunk show before the customers get there. One a size XL-1X, the other size 6-8 both trying on the same sweaters in sizes M-L and all sweaters looked good on both!
That's why Hanne Falkenberg deserves the $$$ for her patterns/kits!
Customers of all shapes and sizes tried them on and while the colors didn't always agree, the shape of the garment looked good on everyone. Of course everyone had their preference, and would want to go up or down a size and change the sleeve length.
The trunk show items (that I can remember) are:
Ballerina - perfect!, it has a graceful flow that doesn't overwhelm small women
Dacapo - I will buy one day! The smaller you are the wider the turned back lapels are
Domino - the most traditional cardigan but with beautiful stitches.
Mareager - like a serape but tacked on the sides, long, looked better on the tall women, course you can make it shorter
Pyramide - My favorite! I will buy one day! Like a comfy sweatshirt, we have the medium which fit me okay, but I'd go up a size to wear something under it (I'm usually XL-1X)
Promenade - shawl that transforms itself by the different ways you can wrap it, it threw me with the points on the shoulders until I threw the long ends to the back and it all fell into place. You can also cross the long ends in the front and tuck into your skirt/pants
There are more but I can't remember their names....call if you would like them described.
If you're in the area this coming week, stop by to try the sweaters on. The construction and fit is beyond my understanding. And the yarn is softer (washings/cleanings/handlings) than when it is first knit.
