Despite the fact that it has been at least 103 degrees since Monday, I've been thinking about knitting some vintage woolly undies. I know I haven't finished the 1940's top yet, or the swatch for Magknits, or the really ├╝ber-snazzy socks that woke me up last night just shrieking for me to write down their pattern. Yes, socks wake me up at night screaming. I'm sure you'd all like to delve into the troubling aspects of my nightlife, but I'm just going to say it all somehow involves shouting socks.


Apparently I've been running around without any vintage knitted undies. What the hell is wrong with me? I've got cotton, rayon, and silk vintage undies, but no knitted ones. Don't I have any shame? Apparently not, so here are five pattern links to knitted ladies' knitted undies.

WW2 Vest
1944 Vest & Knickers
1946 Vest & Knickers
Dainty Knickers
Lace Vest & Panties

The last two patterns don't have a year but if they're not 1940's then somebody's been looking awful close at the patterns from that era and making some damn good reproductions.

Needless to say those Dainty Knickers (hmmm, done in handspun black silk?) are just screaming "Severina." I won't tell you what those socks have been screaming. That's private.

Your a goddess, more downloads! You have such great taste!

Congrats again on magknits babe!
Hope it cools there sooner then later!

K I already loaded a few of these awhile ago, but you still have the best taste! Thanks!

PS Did you see that someone on PRKG's put down Billy Bragg as their band? How kick ass is that!?

Went to an art fair today and thought of you!

We were all excited today that it was only 90 degrees.

I'll be happy when it's only 60 degrees and I can haul out the sweaters & long underwear.

No Magknits just yet! I still have to get a drawing and a swatch pic to them and I've been waiting for it to cool off so I don't get sweaty pawprints all over my sketchbook.

Oh I haven't heard Billy Bragg in ages! I din't realise he was still around...

Inky said...

Very dainty, they'd look lovely on ya!

And damn, do you live in hell or wtf? It's finally down to mid-80's here at my folks in Mickey Mouse land, but I yearn for the low 70's of the Central Coast. I tried knitting today (a throw for the new Casa de Inky) but it was too f'ing hot for lap full o' yarn.

I came across your site randomly, and it looks cool! I wear a lot of vintage clothing too, and used to work at a vintage store. It's so much fun finding an old pattern that fits! Keep up the good work! cheers
