Lady's Undervest

by Weldons

Lady’s Undervest with Moderately High Neck and Long Sleeves, published in Weldon’s Practical Knitter, Twenty-Eighth Series (1895) and republished in Weldon’s Practical Needlework Volume 10.

“The Pretty undervest shown in our engraving is so elastic as to be capable of fitting almost any figure, and moreover, plenty of space is afforded on the chest by means of bosom darts. The pattern is a wide rib. The vest is 29 inches long from the shoulder to the bottom, and the sleeves are 17 inches long.”

The original pattern requires: “8 ozs. of unshrinkable best wool of the best quality procurable, a pair of No. 10 long bone knitting needles, or No. 9 if a tight knitter or if an extra-sized vest is wanted, also a pair of No. 12 steel needles, and four pearl buttons.”
