Striped Shell Square Neck Jacket Crochet Pattern


 Two Way Evening Set: This vintage 1950s pattern contains instructions to crochet both the shell and jacket (or top) pattern pictured above. The pattern is sized 12 to 18. Instructions are for size 12, with changes for 14, 16 and 18 shown in parentheses. 

Just for fun - The official write-up : "We call this the Two-Way Evening Set - the blouse may be worn alone with a formal evening skirt or with the jacket for cocktails. Actually, it has multiple uses. Such match and mix garments are a worthwhile project for anyone handy with a crochet hook. The blouse, striped for smartness, of glitter yarn for glamour, you would find double use for this blouse as a tuck-in over a full sleeved jewel neck chiffon blouse in beige, with a skirt to match and darker stripe. Jacket and Blouse - Omit the blouse for a change and use a dickey instead to match a pair of trousers for smart attire at your television party. You could also wear this jacket to add sparkle t a short sleeved dress".
