50s Shawl Collar Cardigan
How about this for an hourglass fit?
This exceptional piece is based on several knitwear patterns from the late 40s and early 50s, and as a result is a most mid-century marvel! That very vintage shawl collar swoops to a v neckline, and deep ribbing at the shoulder yoke, waistline and under-bust enhance the blouson effect over the bust, creating an incredible visual nip and shape, finishing at the natural waist for a proper vintage vibe.
Topped with natural shell buttons and lovely long sleeves, this piece can be worn as a top with just a slip or bra underneath, or over one of our stunning vintage-style tops or dresses with a crossover or lower neckline.
Composition: 50% wool 50% acrylic
