Vintage Tennis Outfit Dress, Bandeau, Belt and Socks Circa 1938 PDF Knitting Pattern

Tennis anyone?
It's always a good time at Wimbledon! Why not arrive in style this year in your circa 1938 tennis outfit?
Entitled, "TOP-TO-TOE" TENNIS OUTFIT, instructions are to make a dress, bandeau, belt, and socks.
The instructions to make this outfit were originally published in a womens' magazine in 1938.
In those days, white was the colour for the tennis court. This pattern has the unusual addition of a bit of colour in the belt, bandeau, and socks. The pattern calls for green, and due to the dark colour in the black and white photographs, I would say it is a dark hunter's green, or deep emerald green. I have colorized one photo of the outfit to visualize what it might have looked like.

I love what it has to say about the back-buttoning bodice of the dress:
"Buttoned down to the waist at the back, the frock may be worn unbuttoned for sunbathing." Now that's a bit racy for the tennis court, isn't it. Just not 'proper'!

Thanks for stopping by and having a peek.
Cheers,
Maggie
