I think I've FINALLY figured out what is wrong with Lacey's heavyweight blanket: it has clips in the front (instead of the buckles that I'm used to) and I'm apparently not very good at adjusting them correctly.
I realized this today when I was looking at her blanket and I was wondering why in heaven's name the shoulder gussets were in front of her shoulder, instead of aligned with them.
So basically, how do you adjust those clips correctly? There are buckles to adjust, then clips to make it "easy" for the next time...
This afternoon I adjusted it so that the buckles were on the largest hole and that seemed better, but then the front edges of the blanket were barely lining up, no overlap... Since this blanket is a 70 and Lacey usually wears a 69 -with overlap in the front- I'm thinking that something still isn't right.
I'm so confused.
Here's a link to the blanket if you need a better visual (click on the "Zoom in/more pictures" link below the picture to get a closer look).
And before you all die of sticker shock/think I'm rich, I got this blanket on clearance for $90. And I got this one because the price decrease was the best.
