The Way They Were #4

-Berroco ad, s/s 1987

25 odd years later, Berroco is releasing Nora Gaughan's 8th pattern booklet. It has some gorgeous pieces in it which show off Berroco's core yarns. The styling is quite nice, the palate on point, but what is remarkable about this round of patterns is the fit. While Nora Gaughan's garments are usually generous, drapey, and swingy, these new looks echo a mid 80s sense of ease. Actual patterns from that period didn't always reflect this trend which is strange. The orange top "Pixie" in the ad above illustrates the look. I think that these new Berroco sweaters will fit a wide range of sizes and styles.
