It is high time that I share some more treasures from the Mccall’s Treasury of Needlecraft, don’t you think? I took all these photos last year, shared some here on the blog (hats, dressy sweaters and dresses), and then forgot that I had the rest of these! They were a bit out of season, but now that we’ve got snow on the ground, or at lease chillier climes headed our way in the Northern Hemisphere, sweaters are just what are needed. So, today I am sharing a few lovely vintage pullover sweaters from the book.
Above: I love her belt over the top and also how her scarf loops through her collar- such a lovely classic look! Also, note that she has a zipper on the front of her skirt, which I think is rather unusual for that era?
Pretty vintage ski attire- if only sports attire looked as nice today. Yes, I know that it’s all about “performance” but as someone who really couldn’t care less about sports, I just want everything to look nice 😉
This is a really nice “college girl” look. Again, I love her scarf- I think I need to adopt scarves into my outfits more often!
Nothing like posing for a photo while eating an apple? But just look how wholesome this sweater is because it is in an orchard. Style-wise, I don’t really like the boxy fit. It would probably be comfortable, but not as elegant for sure.
A “simple crocheted” sweater. Love the batwing silhouette. And, the statement necklace is really interesting too- usually models wore more understated jewellery such as pearls and chains.
Which sweater is your favourite?
Well, that’s rather a small collection for today, but as it is late and I still have many things to do before the end of the day (I’m selling at a craft sale tomorrow, and there’s much to be done before then) so. . . I’ll sign off for now!
