Do you have a favorite, absolutely-do-not-want-to-live-without, perfect-fitting, wear-all-the-time piece in your closet? I do. It is a completely perfect heather gray cardigan. The sleeves are the perfect length and have not shrunk after a billion washes in the washing machine (cold water, of course). I will not mention brands which repeatedly disappoint in that specific area. Back to my sweater …I wear it with skinny jeans, pencil skirts, balloon skirts, flowy t-shirts, heels, flats, flip-flops, trousers and pajamas (with pajamas I am fully adorned with jewelry to impress my esteem). It is so perfect I often wonder how would I change it, if I could. Well, while I love the measurements, I would improve the fabric to one that never wears away and never creates tiny fuzz balls. I noticed those awful fuzz balls are on the way and, yes, I recognize I have washed it a gazillion times and even sadder, I recognize I should not wear it with anything but pajamas. Is there a fabric which can endure such frequent agitation in the washing machine and not create fuzz monsters. Further changes …I would include a sweater belt but not attached belt loops to the sides of the sweater – for versatility.
