A brand new cardigan heavily inspired by the 'Datemaker' style very popular in the early and mid 1940s.
Based on a knitwear pattern from the 1940s, you cant get more wartime 1940s than this beauty!
Style creates the classic 1940s silhouette with strong squared shoulders and nips in at the waist with adjustable slide belt. Cardigan style is open at the front with rounded neckline. Stitch is a simple wide rib on sleeves and main body with a finer stitch on shoulders which creates a yoke effect. Stitch creates an attractive twist effect on sleeves.
Belt feeds through a bakerlite style buckle at front - requires belt to loop back to secure.
- open front
- rib stitch
- bakerlite style buckle

This is the 1940s cardigan I have been waiting for, the style is fabulous, and a very flattering shade of green I have worn it with 40's style trousers and a red 40's blouse underneath which looks amazing with the green colour, I am a size 6 and the xs was a perfect fit .I would have paid more to have a higher percentage of wool,but I hope to buy more in different colours.
