Welcome to another instalment of the Fashion Moment series, this time featuring quite a few lovely vintage short sleeved knits. I only have a couple of short sleeved sweaters, but they are great pieces to wear in the Spring before the weather gets too warm. Depending on where you live, it might already be past the season for sweaters! This is the second-last post in this McCall’s series as I’ve only got one more set of photos from this book. I hope you enjoy seeing these today!
Above, is a very pretty dressy cardigan with embellishments on the collar. It looks like she’s wearing it for a formal event. And, below is this lovely dressy knit pullover with a beaded yoke- so pretty! I love how adding beads to a sweater suddenly makes it so dressed up.
Next up are several short sleeved knits in a similar style- all featuring a small collar and some with buttons and some without. I think this is a pretty classic vintage wardrobe staple. This style of sweater has been around for so long, and you can usually still find plenty of them in the thrift shops!
Next up is this pullover with a hood. I love the look of hoods, but I often find that they look less than ideal when they are pulled up…what do you think about hoods?
I really like this v-neck collar detail on this next sweater. I think it adds such an elegant shape to the sweater and makes it a bit dressier than the ones with peter pan or pointed collars.
And lastly, a casual striped sweater. This looks, to me, like something you’d wear for sports or out camping, but they’ve got the model carrying a purse and wearing pearls, so I’m guessing they are thinking it’s more for an afternoon out shopping!
Which of these is your favourite? I’m partial to the beaded sweater, but I wouldn’t say no to any of these actually!
