Is it just me?....
Or is this sweater too small for the model? If you want to show off a nice sweater shouldn't you show it in the correct size? It's pulling across the bust and causing some gaping between the buttons and it's pulling on the shoulder seam at the front. The arms also look too short. They maybe are supposed to be 3/4, but they just look too short.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Have to agree, it does look too small. As though if she moved at all, everything would ride upwards - strange!

Way to small... her 'girls' are pulling at the sweater - they should have found a 'smaller' model, made a larger sweater, or left the darn thing unbuttoned.

Designers need to know that they need shapping for women in the 'girl' area - you can have a small women with larger 'girls'. We aren't men.
OTN - lacy sweater and just beginning another pair of socks - toe up

FO's: garterstitch scarf, dropped stitch cable fingerless mittens, socks for Christmas, and 6 baby hats, cabled toddler hat, hat for mom, MIL socks

I think the way she is standing with her elbows pointing back and her girls pushing out adds a lot to that effect.

Yep, "June is busting out all over", LOL! This is like a bizarro sweater or something. It honestly looks to me like one that would have something worn underneath it....and ain't nothing gonna fit under that one!!!!!!!!!!!

The picture definitely does nothing for the sweater.....IMHO it makes it look like something a person wouldn't even want to try to make 'cause it's so odd looking.

It looks to me as if it were knit for Twiggy and a really woman showed for the photo. It also appears that she has her shoulders pulled back making the matter even more extreme.
