>I’ve nearly finished the short sleeved sweater, I only need to sew on the neckband. The pattern I used is from 1957 but to me the sweater looks more like something from the 1940s, what do you think?
I know it’s not quite finished yet and you can’t really see it in the photo but it’s the way the sleeves are set in that seem to give it the 40s look. Maybe it’s just me. Once I’ve sewn the neckband into place I’ll give it a wash and see if it changes. It’s not that I mind the way it looks, it doesn’t really bother me, it just didn’t look like that in the magazine that I got the pattern from. It actually fits quite well, the top of the ribbing sits in exactly the right place and the sleeves are just the right length. I’ll definitely wear it but I’ll probably feel as if I should be wearing a headscarf or a snood and listening to Glen Miller.
Talk to you later,
