A Fashion Moment With McCall’s Treasury of Needlecraft: Dressy Sweaters
I think that it is about high time there was another peek into the McCall’s Treasury of Needlecraft, don’t you? It has been quite a while since the last edition, back in July, where I shared knitted and crocheted dresses. This time around, we are delving into “Dressy Sweaters”.
By this I mean, not your average knitwear, which is usually intended for warmth (although style is always important as well!). These knits I share with you today are all just a bit fancier- either with intricate patterns, beading or other pretty details. Some of them are not specifically intended for evening wear, but look a little bit more elegant due to how they are styled, and what they are paired with, while some of them are intended for evening wear. We don’t usually think of knitted and crocheted garments for evening, but when they are made out of more delicate materials, they are the perfect option for fancier occasions, especially when the weather begins to turn cooler.
I hope you enjoy these lovely pieces! Which are your favourites?
This needs to be in my wardrobe. Like, right now. This is one of the most beautiful cardigans I have ever seen, and it is definitely worthy of being worn with a bridal ensemble as shown here. Or with anything for that matter, as it would make any outfit incredible!
Two outfits finished off perfectly with the addition of a belt.
You could definitely wear this beautiful jacket in place of a blazer. It looks so polished.
When in doubt, add a muff. And beading. And gloves. And impeccable hair. Ok, I’ll stop now.
Not only in love with her top, but her topper as well! Do you think it’s a beret? Or a hat with a folded up brim? It’s hard to tell!
I’m gonna guess the lady on the right is wearing a bullet bra. . .
What appears to be another bridal ensemble.The question we are all asking ourselves though is . . . seriously, what is with the guy in the background??
And last, but not least, this “handsome mandarin jacket” is made of ribbon yarn. It gives an interesting texture, and also a pretty and elegant sheen, don’t you think?
