Subversive Femme

Cabra plus-sized suit, Minerva 39 (circa early 30s)

Sometime ago, a really lovely knitter sent me scans of her 1930’s Minerva Knitting Book for Plus Sizes.
(Minerva were the best knitting books on the market at the time – they later became Conde Nast, then Vogue).

So here is design 3902, Cabra. A crocheted crepe suit with diagonal scarf sized for 40inch bust.
(these are not my scans BTW, hence the resolution might be a bit low).
I personally want to crochet the scarf – the suggested colourway was Chestnut, Tally-Ho Green, Sprig and Champagne.
