I love knitted dresses so much – can you imagine the amount of time is must have taken to knit one? It takes me at least three months to make a jumper, I think a dress would be beyond my patience.
This lovely burgundy shirtwaist dress comes from Vogue’s 23rd Knitting Book – probably early-mid 1940s. It looks ever so stylish with the match hat and belt too!
The pattern is to fit a 34″ bust and26″ waist.
Requires fingering weight yarn on 3.25mm and 2.75mm needles.
