1930s Winter Wear

Today I’ve gotten side tracked by the 1930s because of a lovely piece of rust and cream herringbone wool given to me by a friend that just needed to be made into something 1930s and fabulous. Eva Dress SE30-1399 had been waiting in my pattern stash for just such an opportunity!

It goes smashingly with this 1930s sweater I also recently knit from A Stitch in Time Vol. 2. This whole ensemble has me wishing for more wintery days so I can wear it!

Find more details and a pattern review on my blog.

  • Beautiful! So smart of you to shorten the cape. I made this pattern up last winter, and I hardly ever wear it; it seems like the cape is just the wrong length! I love your version!

  • Stunning outfit. I love the colours together and the shape and length of the cape is so elegant.
    Just checking – its a dress with a knit on top, not a skirt and knit?

    • It’s a skirt with a sweater, not a dress.
