1950's Shawl Collar Cardigan in French Blue by The House of Foxy
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. (Modern length cardigans just don't work with vintage styles)
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.
