When I was asked to participate in this blog tour, I really wasn't sure at first. I hadn't seen the "Perfectly Plus" book before and couldn't find any pics of the contents! But then? I found the cover. I was completely sold. If it were just for this one design by Marlaina "Marly" Bird, I thought it was worthwhile read!
When I received the book, I was really very pleasantly surprised. I love simple lines, and this book is filled with wearable pieces that would look good on many different body types. My two favorites are Marly's cover sweater:
and Amy Polcyn's "Make Me Blush."
Both are simple and elegant, with clean lines. Definite wardrobe staples.
Moving on, there is a great section up front on sizing sweaters to fit, and whatever size you are, it's absolutely worth a read. This book is headed straight to my reference shelf. I know; I was going to give it away, but I find I can't part with it! How's that for an endorsement? ;)
My only complaint is that the smallest size is a 1x. I would have loved a greater size range, but that can be solved by using a different gauge. Because really? I must have these two sweaters. Must. Have. Them.
