As every knitter already knows, knitting is a stylish, fashion-forward and timeless hobby.

From women's clothing - like lacy blouses and tunics - to lingerie and lace gloves, this gorgeous book has a pattern for every vintage enthusiast.
Make a variety of retro and glamorous projects ranging from small accessories that best suit beginners, to full-size garments, like lace skirts and blouses, for the seasoned knitter. Designer Jennie Atkinson's attention to vintage detail is astounding. Every delicate piece in this collection exudes elegance and femininity, especially the 1930s-inspired lace blouse crafted with light crochet cotton.
