The store had a shelf, marked 'FREE', of old magazines and flyers. Flipping through it I found the Spring/Summer 1987 Vogue Knitting. And I love eighties sweaters!! I offered money for it but they said they just wanted the books to go to good homes. How delightful.
This issue is a gem. Naturally, some loud colours, over sized bodies and floppy sleeves are present. But check out these lovely designs:
|The cotton in this pullover reminds me of Americo's Cotton Flamme.|
|Cute cardigans with dresses and skirts are always a favourite. |
(Side note: I tried this hairstyle in the 80's - to disastrous effect.)
|Wow!. And it's cotton. I want this deep waist rib top now.|
|I've been looking for a simple loose pullover. I don't wear contrasting |
stripes myself so I'd use a single colour while keeping the texture.
I am mad for dropped sleeves.
They are out of 'vogue' these days but are still so flattering.
|Yes, this is an article by Elizabeth Zimmerman!|
This magazine was truly a find. I had heard of EZ's faux seams before.
Now I have the source material.
