Free Pattern: 1955 tweed pencil dress and bulky jacket


1950s free knitted pencil dress and bolero jacket pattern
free 1950s knitted dress and cardigan pattern from Va-Voom Vintage

With the heat of summer in full swing, knitting may sound a little crazy but this curve-hugging sleeveless dress is perfect for the office or a movie date in the dark, cold air conditioning with this sweet little bulky cardigan to keep the chill off your shoulders.

The jacket has a large collar, ribbed sleeve cuffs and 6 over-sized buttons.

This 1955 ensemble is in blocked bust size of 34-38 inches and the blocked jacket is 35-39 inches. If you need help resizing this pattern, check the vintage knitting resources at the bottom of this post.

I don't know if I'll ever get around to knitting an entire dress but that jacket in mint green would be perfect don't you think?
