Knitting - a Ribbon Blouse from 1952

This pretty blouse is from Smart Knitting and Needlecraft, 9th edition, 1952(fifty cents). It's knitted in a slip-stitch pattern using one row of ribbon and one of gold metallic yarn, and because there isn't much "give" to these two fibers, there's a zipper under the left arm.

That is quite pretty but I bet it's hard to knit with ribbon and very expensive too considering how much a spool cost.

Love the blouse and the model looks like my Mom when I was growing up. Opps, there goes the age.
