Hi friends! How are we doing this week?
So unless you haven’t been on my Instagram recently, you might not know that I moved! I’m finally out of my share house, which I’m pretty happy about. It wasn’t an awful place to be, but to say it became toxic at the end was an understatement. But now the past is the past, and I’ve been settling into my new place with my boyfriend nicely. It feels so good to feel comfortable at home again. And I’m stupidly excited to get straight back into sewing. So what a better way to celebrate than with this Miss Fortune Stitch in Time Jumper!
This item was gifted in return for a review and images. Opinions are my own, I’m not paid to say anything in particular. Some links may be affiliate links, it just means I might get a few quid if you buy through my links. You can read more in my disclaimer.
I’ve never had the pleasure of wearing a Miss Fortune jumper before, which is honestly a shame, since they’re just amazing pieces. So I was pretty excited when Miss Fortune herself asked for some photos of this the Stitch in Time jumper at my sewing desk!
Since we’ve just moved in, I’ve been playing around with where to put my sewing desk in the living room for the last two weeks. It actually hasn’t stayed in this particular place, but hopefully I can start putting up art, a pin board and some shelves around it soon to beautify it! So for this particular post it doesn’t seem too exciting, but hey — this is where clothes are made, that’s pretty cool, right?
So let’s talk about the jumper itself. One, it’s cute as hell. Two, it really is cute as hell. And three, you guessed it — cute. as. hell. I loved them on sight back when the owner, Laura, posted the possible colour ways back in March (And I still mourn the black/red option). Sewing-related clothing and accessories just make me so happy. I chose the blue over the pink, since this turquoise just pops so well with red!
The jumper features a spool and needle on the front, with a reoccurring stitch detailing through the front and back. I really appreciate when thought goes into the back of an item. So much so that I was slightly amazed when I opened the package!
So as for sizing, I gave Laura my measurements and she sent me an XL. In relation to the size guide on the product page, it is absolutely bang-on! My measurements are practically exact to the size guide, and this jumper is a wonderful fit. It went over my chest without stretching out, the waist sits flush without being tight. And the arms — a plus size nightmare — was literally just right. I barely feel that I had sleeves at all, they fit so well.
Miss Fortune jumpers are generally all 95% acrylic and 5% elastane. But the acrylic wool shouldn’t bother you at all — I didn’t find this jumper to be itchy at all, and my sensitive skin usually picks that up easily. It’s super soft, and it’s kinda mid-weight, which means it’ll see you through spring and autumn, and great for the non-sweltering days in summer!
True to size! For a larger bust, size up. For a tighter fit, size down. But certainly do go by the size guide on the product page. In sizes XS – XXL, too!
It’s a lovely jumper — I’d still prefer to have the black/red version of course, but I do love the colour of this. I just wish I had some brighter blue accessories! I’ve not got my eye on some of Miss Fortune’s other jumpers; the Space Age in blue and in black, and the Switchblade Babe in red for example. AND they’re made in England, so it’s great to be supporting a female-run business keeping British-made clothing alive!
You can get the Stitch in Time Miss Fortune Jumper in both blue and pink on their website. And if you hurry, they’re having a sale! So head over before Monday 8th July to get up to 70% off!
