I only got one of these sweaters for myself and am regretting leaving the fuchsia behind. A reader recently asked why I am against buying duplicates. I used to get over-excited at finding things that “fit” and freely hoarded multiples of different colors. Looking back, many of these things were quite mediocre and didn’t even fit right. Now that I’m more experienced, I know that there will be other, new options in the future (unless it’s a true challenge item, like petite-friendly suiting) and that fashion tastes will change over time. Unless I am certain that a piece will be a wardrobe favorite, I’m hesitant to buy more than one…but will probably regret not doing so for this sweater!
When I got the 0P jeans, however, I immediately noticed that the waist, hips, and inseam fit exactly like my 0R, with the only difference being a 2″ shorter inseam and slightly, ever so slightly narrower thighs. I had hoped that the petite version would have smaller proportions and smaller back pockets (wishful thinking!). I looked at the tag and it doesn’t even say 0P – just “0 X Short.” I like the inseam a lot on me, but have to complain about the big stiff back pockets, stiffer denim material, and the lint-magnet material. **UPDATE** – According to several readers, it looks like Old Navy may have mistakenly sent me the 0 Short instead of the 0 Petite, which would explain no differences in the waist/hip area.
