Subversive Femme

Smart Top and Skirt, Woolworths Economy Knits 23, c. 1940s

I love this 1940’s look so much – some of my favourite vintage detailing is in this pattern; strong shoulders, puffed sleeves and a belted waist. The model looks so sweet, isnt her hair lovely?

This pattern is knitted on fingering weight yarn on 3.25mm and 2.75mm needles. To fit 32/34 inch bust, 27 inch waist and 36 inch hips.
