Some more lovelies that I added to the Etsy shop this week. 1940s snakeskin handbag, 1950s oval handbag, 1960s mens dress shoes and 1950s rayon dress. The dress is very cute with a collar that ties up at the front like a scarf.
I wish I could knit!! My mum was a talented knitter in her 20s (back in the 1970s) but sadly, I never learnt the art myself. I have so many vintage knitting books from the 30s and 40s and would dearly love to have some of the blouses and dresses made for me.
In the mean time, feast your eyes on some of these beauties knitted from vintage patterns by Michèle Marck (pictured below) from ‘Michèle’s Vintage Knitwear’ in the UK. I have admired her gorgeous knitwear for years and would love to buy a 1930s knitted blouse from her one day. Michèle’s garments look like perfect replicas of the original knitting book ‘finished product’ photos and I love the little details she uses, such as vintage buttons (if there is a shoulder opening). Such lovely touches.
She also has a flickr account linked to her blog with load of pics of her creations, so take a look and be inspired! Maybe you can even buy a piece from her or learn to knit! 🙂
I’ve been a little bit slack at posting the new shop finds, been very busy lately. But, as promised, here are few of the beauties I have added there of late. A 20s dress and magazine, 30s suit set, a few 40s dresses and shoes, 40s linen blouse, deadstock gloves and some handbags and a 50s swing coat Enjoy!
