Subversive Femme

Curvy Month Pattern: High Fashion, circa 1950s

Welcome to Curvy Month! A month of free vintage knitting patterns in larger sizes, for the curvy knitter.

To start us off, here is a very fashionable jumper with a killer fifties fit from ‘Twinprufe High Fashion for Larger Sizes’.

The jumper has the fabulous addition of taffeta ribbon to the neckline (ooh la la) but you could achieve the same effect with some nicely hemmed, stiff fabric.

In three sizes, 38″, 40″ and 42″, and knitted using fingering weight yarn on 2mm and 3mm needles.

    Hello there!
    The blouse is absolutely adorable. There's a hind of glamour in it, and the bows are so lovely, I'd put them almost on anything.

    Oh, nice to “meet” you.
