vintage baby dress knitting patterns
Hema 269: Great vintage little girls dress knitting pattern 1920/30s. This lovely pattern is worked in vintage silk and angora yarn, sadly difficult to get, but you can by angora (see links pages) and us a 4ply pure wool - unless you can find a light weight silk yarn - there are some around - look on ebay. But this does knit up well in modern 4ply, just change needles to get the size right. This one fits chest 22 inches and is 16 inches long. The rabbit wool is used after the knitting is finished to edge in crochet and to work the little balls in the squares. You could cast on the sleeves and cast of the neck in rabbit wool if you did not want to do the crochet.

This one is to fit 2-4 years or 21 inch chest and is nicely fitted with set in puff sleeves and pretty vine pattern on the skirt. Knitted in in vintage 3ply, so try modern 4ply in a tension square. It is suggested as this is a wartime pattern and austerity measures were in force that an unpicked adult jumper or cardigan was used. It gives instructions on how to treat unpicked wool. This can still work but is best done from a hand made wool garment.

vintage girls knicker with pocket knitting pattern 1940s

KB3-200uw: Great vintage knitting pattern for girls knickers and vest 1940s. This is a super pattern, I wore a pair like this, knitted from similar pattern in the 1950s when I was at school in bottle green to match my gym-slip! And were else did you keep your hanky? Finding it and getting it out to blow a very cold nose on a very cold day was the biggest problem for any little girl and a happy few moments for the small boys in the class as they watched the struggle!! There is also a pretty vest with paw print lace top and ribbed bottom for neatness. To fit  a 32 chest - this set is more for a teenager, but I have to say I wore knickers with a pocket right up into High School - an all girls school - thank goodness! Still wearing a gym-slip and straw boater (beret in the winter) More of that later!!

KB5-127uw: Great vintage knitting pattern for girl's liberty bodice 1940s. To fit 30 inch chest with button ribbon shoulder straps - so easy to make for that extra bit of warmth at school or at play. Small rubber buttons are used to attach the straps. These buttons were used as they did not break in a mangle as they were squashed through the wooden or rubber rollers, so they did not need to be removed when washed or wrung out by hand. I sometimes have some for sale or the linen covered ones which could also be used. This little top could also be made in a pale shade and with pretty ribbon at shoulders serve as a Spring or Summer top.
