It’s nearly the end of my series of thirties knits scanned at the British Library, but don’t fret vintage pattern addicts – I have a hoard of 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s patterns to scan from my own collection. For those in London, I’m also planning to sell some of my vintage patterns and magazines, sewing patterns and fabric at the Hackney Jumble Trail (weather permitting, if it rains people might have to come up to my flat).
Today’s pattern is from the end of the Sitchcraft Leaflet Series and has lovely embroidered zigzags. The bust size is a tiny 30 -32 inch and can be made with long or short sleeves. As a larger bust size than this, I’m thinking of adding that kind of embroidered design to a different pattern of a more generous size – perhaps something that I don’t wear very often having become bored with it.
Unfortunately the date stamp was too faint to read, but I’m fairly sure that part of the collection was from the late thirties. Here are the pdf versions of the three pages – page 1, page 2 and 3, Page 4
