I found another fab vintage knitting pattern for a bolero jacket similar to Kate Middleton’s! This one is from the 60s and calls for sequin trim – ooh la la. 🙂 I do find the most amazing things in my stash o’ stuff. I’ll be posting more vintage sweater and shawl knitting patterns in the weeks to come because they are just too wonderful to keep to myself!
Vintage sizing is quite different, so please note that Size 12 is a 34″ bust. Size 14 is 35.5″, Size 16 is 37″, and Size 18 is 39″.
I’ve heard from several savvy knitters who are going to attempt to make the 50s bolero I posted a few days ago. This is very cool! I am hoping that those who actually make these sweaters will send me a pic of the finished product. Modeling it would be fab too! So get out those knitting needles and goooooooo. 🙂
