This piece has been hand knitted, not by me, from an original 1940s knitting pattern. Knitted in Stylecraft DK acrylic, it is a thick wool which creates quite a chunky finish.
It has been worked in pretty stripes of blue, green, yellow and natural and has broad shoulders, a classic design feature of the era, and a close fitting shape.
This knit is quite stretchy and so will fit a variety of sizes from a 38"-44" bust.
Flat bust 19" stretching to 22"
Flat waist 11" stretching to 16"
Shoulders between sleeves 16" but sleeve head to sleeve head 20"
Shoulder to hem 21.5"
Underarm sleeve length 7.5"
