1940’s Wartime Ribbed Dress PDF Knitting Pattern


94 in stock


Ribbed Dress from the 1940’s war years with
short or long sleeves. Shoulder pads and a
tie belt. It’s was worked in Sun-glo Shrink-
proof or ‘Wigla’ Super 4-ply fingering on No.
10 and 12 needles.

The yarn came in skeins and I couldn’t find any
reference to skein weight, so am assuming they
might be 2 oz skeins. Please check yourself as
I’m only guessing.

You’ll need 20 skeins for the short sleeve and
22 for the long.

36 ins. Length from top of shoulder to lower

conversion chart to help with metric and Us sizes
