Friends, I've been fairly annoyed for some time now on the limited sizing of Vogue knitwear patterns. Sometimes I don't even know why I buy the magazine and give them my money. Oh, I know i could fuss with the sizing myself, and I have. But really! So, today I bought the new fall 2006 issue and found myself reading that they are introducing a "great new feature: VK Plus, a selection of patterns especially chose by our editors, that can be made in extended sizes. The few patterns that they offered were the most bulky, shapeless styles, I nearly died! Not only would these styles make any "plus sized" woman look like the HULK, but they were clearly the patterns that they had to do very little work to re-size. I am PISSED. I am infuriated, and you can be sure that I'm going to let them know. Funny, Interweave knits seems to have no problems sizing ALL their patterns for "extended sizes." It's insulting, Vogue.
