You know that clothing designers hate women

….when you have a closet filled with shirts in the following sizes: 14, 5, 8, 10, and 12 all of which do not fit. In some cases, the size 8s are elephant large. In one glaring case, the size 14 is too small — a victim of a designer using “stretch” fabric to make it “figure conscious”. Feh. Not much knitting going on these days. Instead, a question:
Is it wrong to want to see if we can fill the BP oil spill with fashion travesties? Some of it would be petrochemicals going back home. And some of it might have enough cat hair stuck in it that it would attract more oil. (If BP can have top hats, then I can have the flounce solution.)

[I know this is totally inane and frivolous, but clothing is one of those things you can’t do without, and sometimes it is irritating.]

    Another sign: having clothing items in S, M, L, XL, and XXL, all of which *do* fit.

      Oh yes. I sometimes think that the reason I am paralyzed when clothing shopping is that now I really don’t have a good idea of what would fit on me. I have a similar paralysis when I’m checking out knitting patterns or sewing patterns. I can figure out what would work on someone else… but not me.
