HAND-MADE SWEATERS FROM THE 1950’S

IMG_0866
Beautiful sweaters to make yourself – I’d love to have lots of things like this in my wardrobe (I do have some cardigans that are hand-done). Pictured in the McCall’s Needlework Fall-Winter edition of 1956 – 1957.  This year it’s been so cool that we could sometimes wear them now!

Nothing beats hand-made clothing, done by an expert. At one time, even middle-income women had this luxury because so many of them were very skilled seamstresses and tailors. It was economical to make your own wardrobe and even hiring someone to custom-tailor for you was not out of the question, at least once or twice a year.

The beauty of finding true vintage clothing is that much of it is hand done. . . . . . .
