Jitterbuggin 40s Jumper and Blouse

I've always admired the pinafore dresses worn by women in the 1940s:

 but since I can barely sew on a button I wasn't going to be able to make my own.  Thanks to Jitterbuggin my pinafore dreams came true and I got this beautiful green one and a lovely feed sack print blouse to match (this is actually my second pinafore and blouse from Jitterbuggin, I'll share pictures of the other outfit another time.)  I'm kind of new to having pictures taken of myself, and I never would have done it in my twenties.   My husband and I started being in pictures because it made it easier for us to photograph our dogs and as I've gotten older I am more comfortable with it.  The nice outfit sure helps!

Kim, who designs for Jitterbuggin, is so nice and helpful.  She helped me choose the right size and when I messed up my check out she helped with that too.  The outfit arrived super quickly and I was able to wear it for  a nice mother's day bike ride in the park with my dog Ping who just turned ten.  She is wearing a dress from pug possesed on Etsy for the occasion.  We had a lovely time.

The brooch I am wearing is from ebay seller lilyashlys she makes really pretty 40s style jewelry for very reasonable prices and it came very quickly too.


  1. You make a lovely model - and you and Ping together are magazine worthy :-)

  2. So cute!!! Love the green and your brooch is perfect!

  3. Boy, and I can't imagine you could have picked better colors. You and Ping look like a picture for an afternoon picnic in the park.

  4. I loved you in that and it's so nice to see something different for a change. Can't wait to see more and you're a beautiful lady so if course you should have ZERO issues modeling! Like the hair too!

  5. It's always so much fun to get something new. You both look very nice in your new outfits.

  6. I love it! I recognize this from the black and white Sunday post!

  7. Oh my goodness, you look so splendidly cute and lovely! I have the dark blue jumper from Jitterbuggin'. Such repro pieces (adore them as I do) are usually well above my modest budget, but I was able to add one of these fabulous, classic jumpers to my wardrobe by using Christmas money from my parents for it last year. It's the first piece I've bought from Jitterbuggin' so far, but I certainly hope it won't be the last. :)
