Another lucky find

I seem to be on a roll with finding vintage jumpers at the moment.

My latest thrifty find is a hand knitted Aran cardigan.

It’s a little big for me and Tony hates it.

But tough I’m wearing it anyway!

Once I’ve changed the buttons that is.





Because when I wear it

I’ll look almost exactly like this.

    You’ll be right out of the Toast catalogue. My fashion zone is the ‘scrap’ end of scrapbook at the moment. It’s depressing, but I can’t seem to climb out of the rut I am in, clothing wise.

    It is so wonderful. I would wear it anyway as well. You could always wear a sweater underneath to take up a little room. But just say, “People are wearing their clothes a little big this year”. Wow, how do you find these things?
