1950s Lace Blouse Knitting Pattern

Along with the movie magazines, The Spaniard also found a load of 'Pins and Needles' magazines from the 1950s.  They contain a few sewing related pages and a fair few knitting and crochet patterns, which I intend to share.  I can't knit and have no intention of learning, so I hope others might make them and enjoy them!

First up, this sweet lace blouse


The PDF file can be accessed and downloaded with this link (I hope):

I haven't forgotten the giveaway I promised for reaching over 100 followers, I'm still thinking of what to offer.

  3. Three cheers for the Spaniard!This looks like a great pattern and would definitely be one that I would scoop up if I had the chance.My Mother-load of interesting vintage patterns seems to have dried up here of late.I can't seem to make the link work at the moment so I shall have to try later as it would be a nice one to have and I do seem to be in a knitting a vintage pattern frame of mind rather than sewing at the moment.I seem to have lost it with sewing somehow.
    From what I remember of last year I take it that you are a BFZ (bunting free zone) like myself at the moment.

    1. Hooray indeed! Not sure why the bloody link doesn't work :-( I will email you it in a moment instead. I suppose you can knit sat in your lovely garden, whilst sewing doesn't lend itself to that so much. Mind you, know that summer's over and the rain's returned, maybe sewing will be more appealing again!
      Oh yes, no Jubilee jubilations for me, though I am glad we at least get an extra holiday from them, plus, as I'm a civil servant, we even get a privilege day off for old Queenie's birthday! My republican stance doesn't forbid me from taking full advantage of that :-)

    2. I meant 'now' that summer's over, not 'know' ... gah, damn hangover is messing with my grammar!
