Sorry, this item has sold.

♥️Fun Early 80s 3 piece by 'Elida', perfect for the avid knitter! ♥️Suit consists of a V neck cardigan, Sleeveless top and skirt, all with a dusky pink and black quirky 'knitted' print. ♥️Made from polyester jersey, so it's soft and stretchy. ♥️The skirt has a side button and zip and is fully lined. There's also a spare button inside. ♥️The top is sleeveless with a scoop neck, slightly gathered for a bit of detailing at neckline. ♥️The cardigan/jacket has a slightly different print with a bigger 'knit' pattern with black, cream and rust colours.

Great item for a knitting lover!
