This is a lovely example of an original 1940s fair isle slipover.
Made from what feels like wool, it has been knitted beautifully in pretty shades of blue, yellow, brown, green and dark red in an intricate fair isle pattern.
Looks great worn over a balloon sleeve blouse and is perfect for keeping you warm, while looking stylish, this winter.
PLEASE NOTE THE KNIT HAS BEEN PINNED TO THE MANNEQUIN TO GIVE SHAPE. THIS KNIT IS MUCH MORE STRAIGHT UP AND DOWN.
Flat bust 18.5"
Flat waist 15"
Shoulders edge to edge 15.5"
Shoulder to hem 20.5"
Underarm to waist 13"
Good vintage. There is some minor bobbling in places but the knit is strong and the colours are still vibrant. It has plenty of wear left in it.
