Wendy over at the Vintage Pattern Files is linking up a lot of the free patterns out there.
Anyway, in honour of these very generous ladies, I thought I might share one or two of the patterns I have acquired over the years.
This is a pattern from a 1952 Bernat Handicrafter booklet. I am thinking it was a summer one, because it featured this rather lovely top.

I have a thing about chevrons, and this top, features a nice strong chevron pattern. This textured look is very nice, and I think rather slimming in its effect. It looks rather good with the circle skirt doesn't it?

This could readily be made in a nice cotton, either fingering or sport weight- depending on needle size :)
Those little pearl buttons make it look really classy, but I am sure you might try something different!
If you decide to make this, please, drop me a line and let me see the finished product!

You can download the pattern from this link here. It is a PDF file, so you will need a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat. If you need a different format, just let me know!
