We thought it would be great to present a short Q&A today to answer some of the more common queries we've heard so far. .   . The fashion world loves oversized sweaters these days, and we at BT appreciate their coziness (and also the extra large canvas for beautiful handwork). That said, we also know that these garments can be tricky to wear/style for many – so we're focusing on that topic today (as well as the big question...
