But I still don't know how long to make my sweaters. I know if I want the sweater to look best from the back, I need to make it stop above the widest part of my hips. This lesson comes straight from Amy Herzog who has patiently given me this advice - over and over again. I look at this picture and I know she's right.
Amy also suggested trying one of those scarf-y sweaters that is longer in the front for more coverage. The trouble is, I hate these things. Hate them! Frankly, I don't understand why anyone likes them (but if they work for you, please, wear them in good health and I promise not to talk about you).
