I am in the process of going through some of my old knits and deciding if they should be given away, frogged or (hopefully) entered into the wardrobe rotation. First up is Ingenue.
I remember my excitement upon first seeing this gorgeous retro sweater. So chic, so Audrey Hepburn, so "it had to be mine"! I even ordered the exact same yarn and color that was used in the original, which I hardly ever do. As with most impulsive knits, I did not pause to reflect on whether the resulting style would be flattering to my body type. Disappointingly, it is not. I am petite and this sweater seems to overwhelm my body, especially the sleeves and collar. The color is also not that flattering on me. Instead of the retro chic that I was going for, it makes me feel like a little kid playing dress up every time I try it on. This one will probably be given away since it is still a nice sweater, just not on me.
Are there any finished objects waiting in limbo in your closet?
