1940’s Wartime Frock PDF Knitting Pattern – Digital Download


95 in stock


Simple Dress from the 1940’s war years with
short or long sleeves. Ruched details at the
front of the skirt and side of the bodice and
shoulder pads, tie belt and a little bow at the
neckline. It’s was worked in Sun-glo Shrink
proof or ‘Sunbeam’ Super 3-ply fingering
on No. 10 and 12 needles. The yarn came in
skeins and I couldn’t find any reference to
skein weight, so it’s pretty much buy more
than you think you need time!

You’ll need 16 skeins

Length from top of shoulder 43 ins. Bust 32-34 ins.
Waist 27 ins. Hip 36 ins. Length of sleeve seam
(Short) 5 ins.

TENSION: 7 sts. 1 inch 9 rows 1 inch

The needles are old sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help

The pattern comes as one easy to download
and print PDF
