A fabulous new late 40s, early 1950s inspired cardigan - perfect for autumn - which nips in at the waist to create that sultry hourglass silhouette.

Based on knitwear patterns from the late 40s, early 50s, this cardigan has all the mid century hallmarks; a deep v neckline with shawl collar, long sleeves, six natural shell buttons and high rib to create a natural waisted fit with a blouson effect over bust.

Can be worn buttoned up or loose but designed to be close fitting on waist and generous on the bust to further enhance an hourglass silhouette.

- v neckline
- deep ribbing at waistline and under bust
- natural shell buttons
- wrist length sleeves
