I’m going to stop buying sweaters now

I ordered both of these from Woolovers but I’ve sent them back.

The first jumper had a much smaller neckline than it had looked in the catalogue and was really rather itchy (but it was pure wool so perhaps unsurprising – I’ve been spoiled by synthetic blends).

The second was more of a long jumper than a dress but I have a very long body.  I think I need to be a bit thinner for it – although it fitted me okay, it wasn’t terribly flattering.  I caught myself doing that thing where I suck in my stomach and adjust my trousers in an attempt to make the thing I’m trying on look okay – which means it isn’t okay and needs to be sent right back.  So that’s what I did.
