Vintage Treasures-1930s Knits

The 1930s are by far my favorite decade when it comes to style and when I picture in my minds eye the ideal 1930s women I often see her in one of the knit or crochet pieces from the era.  I love how comfortable, simple, and beautiful the knit wear was.

 Unfortunately since my mediocre knitting skills are not nearly sophisticated enough to whip up one of these gorgeous pieces from a vintage pattern.


So I was forced to look for a genuine vintage piece.  Sadly since knit wear is delicate not a lot of it has survived and that has certainly driven up the price, and then there is the fact that many women in the 1930s where quite a bit smaller then I.  Still eventually I found a really lovely crochet dress from Adeline's Attic.  It was unseasonably warm last Saturday so I got to wear my dress with a walk with my dogs.   The pictures don't do it justice and it is a little snug, but it really is a lovely dress.  Unfortunately my co-model, Weasley, wasn't exactly cooperating during the photo shoot.

  3. Absolutely beautiful dress! Not everyone has the figure to successfully pull off head-to-toe knits like that (they rarely do me any favours, I assure you!), but goodness, do you! Love the saddle shoes that you partnered them with, as well as your absolute cutest "accessory", the darling pug! :)
