But Holmes says, “And then there’s this intriguing twist: The sweater Diana wore in 1983 doesn’t seem to be the same one she wore two years older.” early. It’s the same style, but not the same garment. There are some notable differences in the pattern, including an additional sheep on his shoulder.
