About the top

As soon as I saw the early computer, Colossus, I knew it would inspire a piece of knitwear. The cables weave in and out connecting all the valves and switches that need to be set to crack the codes. The cables in this tank top are a little more orderly. With beautiful patterned waist shaping and classic lines, this is perfect for capturing the glamour of the Wrens who worked the machine.
