Item details

"Sun-Glo Series 75" - young styles for the larger figure.
Complete 12-page booklet (9 designs) scanned into a high resolution PDF.

A delightful example of knitted dresses/tops during the early-mid 40s in Australia, with World War Two austerity measures well in place. Margins are minimal, text is small and the paper is thin - but don't mention the War! These designs are sized for the 38-40 inch bust.

An example of contents include:
- stylish jumpers
- a practical knitted dress
- jacket and cardigans
- bed jacket with dainties (underwear)

My recent purchase from SubversiveFemme was amazing! I bought 9 collections of vintage patterns, some as magazines and others as pattern booklets and all were in .pdf format. They are all incredible! First, the files were sent quickly and opened cleanly. They are of excellent quality and have been expertly scanned and so can be enlarged and read clearly - even at larger than life size! The patterns range from the 1940's to the 1950's and offer some of the most exciting fashion and accessory styles to make in crochet and knitting I've ever seen. The StitchCraft magazines (beautifully scanned in their entirety) are a joy to read. You can spend hours pouring over them. I will definitely be buying from SubversiveFemme again soon for the wonderful designs and the high quality of their .pdf files (and a big plus - no musty vintage odours with e-files! : )
