Why not indeed?
I really adore this Swagger Coat pattern, its from the Woman's Journal 11th Book of Knitting (early 1930s) and the styling is amazing!
"Extremely smart, and really simple to knit is this short swagger coat, beautifully shaped with the fashionable back swing."
I'd have no issues rocking the above outfit, it's such a wearable 1930's ensemble.
The pattern is sized for a 34-36 inch bust, but it's pretty free-size and would probably do up to a 40-42 easily.
Requires worsted/10 ply weight yarn on 5mm needles.
