Here’s one of the mid-1930s blouses from my recent vintage blouse collection in a lovely vintage floral silk. It has a gathered gabot down the front and tucks in sleeves. The back closes with eye and hook. The belt features a vintage buckle.
Here I present an early 1920s style jacket and jodhpurs combo making for a fetching hunting outfit. The jacket is made of a lovely basket weave wool blend fabric and the jodhpurs are in cotton needlecord. The slanted side pockets and the square breast pocket on the jacket make a nice design detail. The wide belt fastening the military style jacket also makes this rather masculine style a bit more feminine. The corduroy jodhpurs which were so popular for leisure wear are high waisted with vintage button closure at the sides and the legs. The balloon style legs give freedom of movement.
Here I present my early to mid-1930s style capsule blouse collection. All made in original 1930s vintage fabrics. “Ruby” is early 1930s style, while “Agnes”, “Loretta” and “Hazel” are mid-1930s style.
They are available at my Etsy shop

This delightful mid- 1930s style jumper had already seen the light of day earlier with butterscotch coloured bakelite buttons, and here revived with rusty red coloured ones and a matching early 1930s style panelled skirt with buttons on the kick pleats down the front and the back, which makes this set perfect for one of those early autumnal strolls. The skirt fastens with snap fasteners at the side.
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.
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.
