Here comes a mid-1930s inspired crochet knit fabric blouse

I rarely work with knit fabrics but just wanted to give it a try and this sweet mid- 1930s style cinnamon coloured cotton crochet knit fabric blouse was the result.

With its unusual eye catching large geometric collar embellished by contrasting 1930s bakelite buttons, puff sleeves and waist band sitting just on the upper hips, also with vintage buttons is the ultimate and perfect separate to complete your 1930s look. It has hook and eye closure at the back of neck.

 

 

 

 

Say hi to ‘Yvette’, my early 1930s style day dress in repro print cotton

This sweet early 1930s style day dress in Kaye England repro print cotton is the perfect example of the feed sack style dresses of the era. It features very art deco style construction with the large pointed collar, ‘double tie’ and the triangle shaped cream cotton lawn inserts on the pockets and sleeves. Two small bakelite buttons bring focus to the tie. The dress pulls over the head.

It also features tswo kick pleats at the front and one at the back. Two vintage buttons and snap fasteners at the side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Early 1930s style cotton jersey jumper with matching beret

Here’s my shot at early 1930s style knitwear in form of this olive/navy/beige striped ribbed cotton jersey jumper and matching beret. What makes this little number a homage to the Art Deco style are the contrasting panels cut on bias forming striking geometric formations. Stripes and plaids cut diagonally this way were very popular at the time. It also features long narrow kimono sleeves and belt with original vintage buckle.
