Frilly Jumper

I've been excitedly waiting for the chance to share 'Frilly Jumper' from 'A Stitch in Time' by Jane Waller. I am working with on the re-publication of this book, published in 1972, showing knitting fashions from the 1920s through to the early 1950s. 'Frilly Jumper' is from the 1930s section.

I have used Kusaki Zome natural dyed silk and A-20 stainless steel for the trim on the frill. I am thrilled with the outcome and can't wait to see it in the new version of the book when its published.

I hope you all like her.

Help with kit 89!

Help with kit 89!
Knitting the fabric was easy, but I am having trouble with the construction of the garment! Does anyone have the pattern, and, if so, help me interpret how the shoulder seams are sewn together?
Thanks in advance.......... Barbara
