L1240 Forties Bestway 1633 Willow Jumper

Vintage 1940s short sleeve sweater in a striking blue and white Fair Isle design reminiscent of antique china. Bestway 1633 is a lovely knitting pattern with a fitted bodice and the strong shoulder line so typical of war era knits. The neckline closes with tiny buttons, making it easy to put on and take off.
