in 1940s,Skirts

If anyone reads my Blog they quickly figure out I have a soft spot for the 1940s! This jumper took me 5 months to knit, and I hope it’s OK to post here on SewRetro.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 It’s the Bell-Stitch Jumper from Stitchcraft Magazine, Jan 1944. It pairs really well with the navy skirt I made from the popular Simplicity repro 3688 (posted last year on WeSewRetro). I wear this skirt all the time, it was so easy to make, I really recommend it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Add a 1940′s celluoid brooch and hair scarf, and i’m set to go! I love this look, but 5 months of knitting? Ouch. I’m switching to DK weight for the next project so I can finish it more quickly and not go quietly insane.
