Designed for comfort this Vest and Pantie set in
5 sizes is from the 1940’s and is worked in 2 ply
on No. 9 and 13 needles. You could probably use
3 ply for them as the yarns have changed quite a
bit since the 1940’s. But saying that always check
the tension first before commencing.
The Panties are Bloomer style as shown and the
Vest has an Opera top with added satin ribbon straps.
TENSION: On No. 13 needles is 16sts and 13 rows over
1 square inch of rib unstretched.
