Not always the most exciting things to find, but I am always thrilled because true vintage wardrobes cannot be built without them. What will you wear with that great 1940’s skirt or pair of slacks? What blouse will be just right under the beautiful skirt suit?
I also love these garments because of the fabric and tailoring. A hand-knitted sweater from back in the day is always a great find because they’re RARE and much more nicely crafted than machine-knit mass-produced clothing in the stores today. I love the Forties/Fifties style of this one with gathered shoulders and ribbed cuffs, fitted waist and a scalloped boat neck. The short-sleeved shirt is a well-tailored cotton version, so common during the 1950’s and early 1960’s for everyday wear. The pale pastel palette will be just right with skirts, shorts, jeans and summer whites.
I hit the separates jackpot which I’ll continue to show you tomorrow. Stay tuned . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
