The Pretty 40s Knitted Sweetheart Top
How cute is this knit? The perfect partner for our new swing skirt!
This irrestible lacey knitted sweater has a classic 40s style sweetheart neckline, short sleeves and sits at the perfect retro length. (short enough to wear correctly with high and natural waisted bottoms).
Also comes in mustard!
Washing instructions: cool machine wash
Made in China
The sweater comes in four sizes because it has plenty of stretch. The size guide below is a recommendation.
Small - fits UK 8 to 10
Medium - UK 12 to 14
Large - UK 16 - 18
Xlarge - UK 18 upwards
I bought this top in both colors (red and mustard), and I hope Pretty Retro decides to bring it out in more! I wear a camisole underneath that matches the color, as the knitting does reveal your bra. It looks great with my What Katie Did cone bra for an authentic shape (softer and less aggressive than a 50s-style true bullet bra). The length is perfect tucked in or not. I'm very petite and the size small is ever-so-slightly larger than I'd like ideally, but definitely still workable.
This light knit is another lovely piece to my ever-growing Pretty Retro wardrobe. I think the red just pops and it is the traditionally short waist that speaks 1940s in volumes. You must have the right bra underneath or other option, because you can slightly see what is going on under this jumper.
