beautiful but sizing wrong
I was amazed at how beautiful this outfit was. The details and workmanship were just wonderful. The detail such as the button loops instead of buttonholes gave is such a "nonmanufactured" look. Lovely ribbon touches on the blouse stood out. There were two problems though. I had to get a 2XL based on the measurement chart. I have never been even close to 2XL in my life. But the elastic in the skirt would not have fit over anything larger than the waist size shown for the 2XL. I would probably get the 1XL size for a blouse from Historical Emporium next time I order and I will buy again. But this blouse fits fine. It was also labeled as 2XL. However the Obi-like sash, beautifully constructed, was HUGH. I had to move the buttons over 7 inches. It was too well constructed to try to make the sash shorter by sewing machine. So I had to put two snaps on the overlapped 7 inches to hold it flat. It was labeled 2XL. I swear that the sleeves were the length of an orangutan's arms. I had to cut 4-5 inches off of them. Luckily I can sew and the sleeves/cuffs were sewn on in such a manner that the sleeve was easily separated from the cuff, sleeve shortened, and sewed back so that you can not tell that the cuff was ever touched. I am 5'6" and have a normal arm length. I think someone who is shorter than I, but still fits the sizing, will have a much bigger problem. Note that I had the same problem, and will be making this same comment, on the Abbington Blouse. I hope HE...
