Some shapes deserve their moment in the sun—and this sweatershines with fitted detail! Ribbed sides and back emphasize the frontwaist shaping, exaggerating the curve of the hip and the bust. Hori-zontal I-cord adds a hint of underwire shaping, with a crochet neckedging, twisted cord bust detail, and knit-on drape sleeves worthyof a committed knitter. Loosen the front ties for a modest look, ortie them tight to create the illusion of cleavage. This project is notso much
difficult
as it is
complex.
Break it down, take it step by step,and conquer the sweetheart neckline corset!

Harkening back to Hollywood’s golden era, Romantic Hand Knits: 26 flirtatious designs that flatter your figure evokes images of a time when sexy didn’t mean skimpy clothing. Figure-hugging silhouettes and feminine styles are sure to turn heads, while satisfying even the demanding fashionista.Divided into three categories - Above the Waist; Below the Waist; and Accessories – Annie Modesitt’s designs cover all skill levels and incorporate many different knitting techniques. Beginning knitters are provided several simple patterns that incorporate interesting details; the “West Side Story” skirt with its flirty ruffled layers or the sultry “Some Like It Hot” elbow-length lace gloves. Experienced knitters have the option to explore new construction techniques in the stunning tulip skirt “An Affair to Remember” (featured on the book’s cover) or face the challenge of the complex “Notorious” corset sweater. Truly adventurous knitters may wish to try knitted millinery, a specialty of Modeseitt, either with the cloche hat “High Society” or the wide-brimmed “Gone with the Wind” (for more on knitted hats, check out Modesitt’s earlier book Knitting Millinery).As well as covering all skill levels, Romantic Hand Knits covers a full spectrum of sizes. Finished chest measurements range from 26.5” (67.5 cm) to 57” (145 cm), with the average falling between 30 and 48” (76 to 122 cm).While taking their style cues from vintage fashion, and the films after which they are named, what makes these designs resoundingly modern is Modesitt’s understanding of fit. Her designs create fabric which drapes to flatter a woman’s curves and uses details such as an interesting yoke or ruffle to draw the eye away from problem areas. Most importantly, she encourages knitters to pull out their tape measures and knit for the body they have, rather than the one of their dreams. As she states: “When we wear clothes that fit us, we look better…Clothes that skim the body, not hug it, tend to be the most flattering.”

I just had to buy this book after seeing it at the library. The patterns are fitted and fun. Each one of these is named after a movie. It makes it more fun because I love the old movies. The patterns are romantic but the are also classy, sexy. Patterns include sweaters, skirts, dresses and hats.
