Curvy Month Pattern Six: Carnaval Cardigan, c.1950s

I really love this cardigan (from Patons Style Vol.16) - a peter-pan collar plus a two-tone front?

The model looks a little like Grace Kelly don't you think?

To fit: 32-33 in, 34-35in and 36-37in busts
Yarn: fingering weight
Needles: 3.25mm and 2.75mm

What I want to know is how they tucked their sweaters so smoothly! Any time I've tucked a sweater into a skirt, there's a really obvious ridge and/or the sweater slides up and bunches.

I do think she looks like Grace Kelly. Something about the specific wavy over her temple.

She definitely does resemble Grace Kelly. I wonder if that was an intentional choice by the creative director or it was merely that Grace's look was so widespread amongst stylish women of the day?
