Zelda Vintage Blouse
Zelda Vintage Blouse

Pattern Description:

My mother was a sexy secretary in the 1940's and loved little tops like this one to wear to work. I think her style was fabulous and often turn to the family photo album for her inspiration.

During WWII, the sweater girl was the woman of the day and on every soldier's mind as he spent lonely months away from home. A curvy gal like Zelda would surely remind him what he was fighting for.

Zelda is knit circularly from the bottom up and is shaped with interior darts. For advanced intermediate and experienced knitters.
