Hi, all -- hope you are all well!
I have been finishing up some work projects so have been quieter here of late. But today I am packing for a trip out west (Vancouver/ Victoria) and I have a question or two for you.
For review, this H&M blouse that I picked up on Style Exchange from Alaskagirl. I have had it since before my Israel trip, but only now got to take pics.
I was hoping this would fit into my appearances capsule for those times when I might want a bit of drama but might not want to wear a jacket.
The trouble is, I don't feel good about the fit. But I am wondering if it is my imagination. The shoulders are perfect and the sleeve length is excellent. (You can't see that here since I have scrunched, as is my wont.)
It's the body portion that feels off. It has princess seams so I think should be quite tailored. But on me, there is a ton of extra fabric in the sides, bust, back, under the arms. I don't know if the photos show this or not.
Anyway, Una mentioned that she felt it would have to be quite loose in the body to work, so that got me second guessing.
Mr. Suz thinks it is decidedly too big, for what it is worth. (In person opinion.)
Sorry for all the pics -- I was trying to get a good view. Also, it is wrinkled. I didn't iron it yet.
Would love to know what you think. If I can't keep it will be up on the Style exchange again. ;)
