This knitting pattern comes from "Minerva Style Book, Vol. 38"
Published by James Lees & Sons Co., copyright 1934

This knitting pattern includes instructions for the dress shown. The dress is knitted with very simple crocheted finishings.

Original Style Description: Made in half the usual time at half the usual price. This design is from our Bulletin No. 34-A. There has been such a continued demand for this lace dress that we are repeating it in this volume.

This pattern is a vintage size 16 to 18, which is characterized by approximately the following measurements:
Bust: 35"
Waist: 29"
Hip: 38"
The pattern can be adjusted to accommodate larger and smaller sizes. Let me know if you need help with this- pattern adjustments can take up to two weeks.

The pattern will be delivered to you in your choice of formats- emailed as a .pdf file, or printed (on plain printer paper) and mailed.

Tools and Supplies Recommended:
1 Pair No. 1 Knitting Needles
1 Pair No. 8 Knitting Needles
1 No. 4 Crochet Hook
1 Blunt tapestry needle or darning needle
1800 yards Minerva Velveen yarn (discontinued)

As always, let me know if you have any questions. Satisfaction is guaranteed, and I will have the pattern mailed or emailed within 24 hours.

This pattern is in the public domain, so may sell anything you make from the pattern.

This pattern is a reproduction of an original Columbia-Minerva design. I scan in all of the photographs from the original pattern book, and then construct a .pdf document by inserting the original photos and then retyping the pattern. This allows me to make a clearer, easier to read product for my customers. I just hate patterns where the font is tiny and scrunched together, where I lose my place and have to squint to read. You won’t find that here! My .pdf files are made with large, simple fonts that are still aesthetically pleasing to look at but won’t give you a headache!
