My daughter came home yesterday with a surprise for me. While browsing through a thrift store in Nevada City called Women of Worth, she came across a crochet and knit pattern book straight out of the 70s. Funny thing, I want to make some of the items illustrated in the booklet! I would call them “enduring classics”, such as the coat and tunic ensemble. All they need is a color change. One major problem I can foresee in these patterns is that the sizing standards have changed dramatically since the 70s to keep up with Americans’ ever-increasing girth. By today’s standards, my size is represented in the patterns, but I can’t see it being the same. Any suggestions on how to handle this? Anyone?
