1930s Winter Wear

March 6, 2012

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.



  1. 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!

  2. im very jealous of your knitting! ive been dreaming of knitting an entire garment, instead of just scarves, but havent learned yet! the cape & skirt are so lovely with the mustard sweater!
