Bewitching For Parties, A Gay Blouse in Icing Sugar Colours c. 1950s

Today's free vintage knitting pattern just cracks me up.
The model's hair looks like it's sliding off her head, and the gentleman behind her looks like he's trying to see down her blouse. I'm waiting for her to whack him in the head with her flowers.

And the colours are certainly reminiscent of icing sugar/frosting!
I really do think the pattern is pretty cute, but I would knit it up in a less-cutesy colourway; maybe hunter green, with rust and yellow fair isle? Or pale blue instead of pale pink?

Either way, it's a pretty unusual style and I hope you like it too.
Knit on fingering weight yarn, using 2.75mm and 3.25mm needles.

OMG! This is the cutest blouse I've ever seen. I bookmarked it, copy/pasted it into my knitting app on my phone and already thinking about which current project to rip out and rework for this pattern. Thanks for sharing this!

You know, you really should put this one on Ravelry, so that I can obsess about it in more forums than my blog and facebbok ;)
I've begun to look at at suitable pink yarn.
