A beautiful one-off knitted sample from A Stitch in Time Volume 2 knitted using 100% laceweight hand dyed yarn in a wool and silk blend in a variegated hand-dyed shade of warm red. This elegant blouse is quintessentially 1950s style. The high neck line and decorative cuffs have turned picot hems. The neckline is gently gathered into the neckband before a dainty bow is sewn in place at centre front. The back neck opens for ease of dressing and is fastened with small press fasteners. The lightweight fabric is given added texture with an unusual all-over slip stitch. The inset elbow-length sleeves have gentle gathering at the sleeve head to create a soft silhouette and a deep ribbed waistband completes the look.
A stunning piece!
The sample was knitted to fit 32-34 inch (81-86 cm) chest and has a finished chest dimension of 33.5 inches (85 cm) and a length to the underarm of 12 inches (30.5 cm).
