1960s Hand knitted jacket and skirt suit - Knitted Suit
- This 1960s hand knitted jacket and skirt suit was made by Gladys Batchelor, a migrant from the island of St. Kitts in the Caribbean who came to live in London during the 1950s. Gladys Batchelor lived in Hendon at the time of knitting and was the next door neighbour of the donor's elderly cousin, to whom she gave the suit. The suit was later passed on to the donor, Mrs Eileen Godfrey. Eileen never wore the suit but kept it as she recognised its worth as a valuable piece of needlecraft. The suit is knitted to look like dog tooth check and is in a classic straight skirt and short jacket style which was very fashionable during the 1960s.
