Lovely Suits

Hello again, WonkyZebra was just in an another lovely Etsy treasury

this time for suits.

Which has reminded me, I have lots of lovely suit patterns, in the shop

not to mention piled up around the house and various files on the computer.

Here are some I thought you might like to see.

This is a quick link to search in the shop for “suit” :-

WonkyZebra 162   WZ162

This is WonkyZebra’s favourite – must be the stripes ! (although it would be a bit eye wrenching in black and white; quite Op Art, but more liquorish allsort than sleek zebra)

A couple of simliar sweater suits :-

WonkyZebra 119  WZ119

 WonkyZebra 159  WZ159

Some real lacy numbers, these are mostly seventies :-

 WonkyZebra 287  WZ287

    WonkyZebra 416 WZ416

  WonkyZebra 486  WZ484

   WonkyZebra 423  WZ423

   WonkyZebra 298 WZ298

Still with the lace, but a little more elegant, and sixties vintage..

  WonkyZebra 273  WZ273

  WonkyZebra 282  WZ282

  WonkyZebra 368   WZ368

Believe it or not, the last two are the same suit – restyled for a younger look… Mid Sixties, think mid century modern or ” Italian Job ” vibe. Actually these are a really comfortable daywear option for work, when you want to look smart but without being shoe-horned into a fitted suit. Of course, one has no help in the “holding in of the tummy” department; but Snoopy once said “some of us prefer style to comfort” but some of us don’t!

However for anyone with a nice svelte figure, these give the best of both worlds (but please choose other shoes than those clumpy moccasins).

About WonkyZebra

WonkyZebra and I have collected tons of patterns over the years. Before this was fashionable and the whole “vintage” thing happened, it was just considered to be a funny sort of hoarding; a bit “anorak” to use one of the slightly mocking terms us English specialise in. Now it is a wonderful source of lost treasure in the online textile universe; who would have guessed! It was quite a relief to find there are many others “out there” who appreciate a good pattern-and maybe even enjoy using them! I think it is a good thing anyone can get access to the designs instead of just those lucky enough to find them in gran’s workbox or charity shops. So, here we are with all our hoard, trying to make it all available as fast as we can…hooves don’t help much so it is down to me. I squeeze it in between actual crocheting, knitting, life, and other sundries. Vintage patterns; PDFs for sale at
