The core of my wardrobe is black pants and a black top, either a T-shirt or Skivvy (such an old-fashioned word) depending on the season. Over this I like to wear a bit of colour so off to the wonderful city of Melbourne yesterday to see what I could find. Well the answer is nothing. I was looking for few long line cardigans in almost any colour except grey or black. What I found was either too short, had a hood, would last through 2 washes, only in grey or black etc.
I also discovered that I don't like shopping in department stores now that they are divided into brand name boutiques. I would have had to go through all of them to rather than going to the knitwear department and soon became hot and disillusioned.
It looked like I would go empty handed but as Clegs is on the way to the station I had a look at what they had to offer and came away with a printed knit jersey which I am going to make using the pattern below.
