I made this for my mother-in-law for her birthday many years ago. I made it at a time when 'Dolman' sleeves were in fashion. My mother-in-law wore this only a few times and now (at the grand old age of 88) has lost too much weight to ever wear it again. I 're-claimed' it and after a little work on the sewing machine with it, I have reduced the big bulky sleeves to something more comfortable to wear. Anything I wear must be comfortable enough to accomodate my knitting needles under my arms!!!! The colours may not be fashionable, but who is going to see me in my living room in the evening? At least I will be warm!
