I mean BRIGHT purple! I've bought DD the most fantastic pair of BRIGHT purple jeans from Primark, but can I find a bright purple cardi to go with it? No. I can find lilac or sludge purple but not BRIGHT. Thought I had found the answer in H&M yesterday but it turned out to be a cropped bolero style thing.
Are there any out there????

Don't put your dd in purple jeans and a purple cardy. She'll look like a grape!

If you must have one, can you get someone to knit one? I believe there are often people on the Arts & Crafts topic who like to have new projects!

I was going to suggest H&M but you've tried there.

What about Vertbaudet?

You are never going to get an exact match. Can you not get something with a pattern to tone in? Try places like Fat Face or Zara.

Put them with turquoise or teal blue or bright green, why do you want her to match?

grin at DD looking like a grape.
I guess she doesn't need to match, I just love the bright purple and now I am a woman obsessed - WHY are all the purple cardigans lilacy or sludgy?
Actually TAFKA in desperation I went into John Lewis at lunchtime, bought the brightest purple wool they had (in fact it's bamboo, not wool, exciting!) and I am going to start knitting this very evening.
Even if this means that DD will in fact look like a grape grin.

Loving the thought of bright purple jeans. Am going off to primark to get some for my DD too.
