I looked at the elderly for inspiration through the way that they dress and style themselves. Looking at the condition Dementia that effects a large majority of the elederly for interesting ways of styling both day and nightwear together. This was personal too as my Nan who recently passed away suffered with Dementia so I had personally experience of what the condition is like and took inspiration from others in her nursing home in the later few months of her life. This also inspired my knitwear directly as there is an oversized jumper with a family favourite photo of her at Christmas in a Christmas hat knitted into the front. Again going round her home and the homes of others taking print and knit ideas from wallpapers and soft furnishings such as florals and pixellating them turning them into jacquards on jumpers and all in ones and enlarged printed vest tops.
