1940s | Skirts

Attack of the 1940s…

April 22, 2013

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.

  1. It’s beautiful! Great job! It looks lovely on you. I wish I had enough patience to knit a sweater. I can’t seem to finish the one I started more than 5 months ago.

  2. Well done, it looks great, as do you. I am jealous, am a hoarder of knit patterns, but still stuck on slippers I started for last winter. Must get them finished soon.
