WB 381: Great vintage knitting pattern for ladies skating dress 1930s. How splendid is this? A fabulous pattern for a full skirted, short skating dress - I remember Ginger Rogers wearing one similar in a film from the 1930s!The high neck and tassel ties is so very of the era, the top fastens with a zip, but buttons could be substituted quite easily. To fit a 32 inch bust, waist 25, knitted in double knitting using a pair of needles and a circular needle (a flexible knitting needle)
