Tailored Chic – Sun-Glo Knitting Book 59, circa WWII, now with plus sizes!
Since Emily suggested a knitted dress, here is a classy one from this cute little booklet (Sun Glo Series 59 – street dresses and suits). I love the Sun-Glo and Lux booklets, the designs always seemed a bit edgier than Patons.
The best thing about this booklet is the instructions tell you how to multi-size it from 32/34 inch bust, to 36inch, 38/40 inch and 42/44 inch. Plus sized! (or Matron sized, as they liked to call it). Imagine knitting a whole dress on 3.25mm needles – it would take me years! I love the staying power of the person who did actually knit this…
Please excuse the dodgy scanning, the scanner at my work was playing up.
