1935 Knitted "Simple Jumper"

I can knit, but nothing intricate and I usually end up abandoning projects because I think knitting is boring. With that said, my grandmother KNITS LIKE THE WORLD IS GOING TO END. One day she'll have a couple rows of something and the next day it will be this large, intricate sweater that is 80% complete, lol. She told me to send any sweater pattern I like and she will have a go at it. Lo and behold:

Please excuse the fabric pile and the TP!(!!)

I found the pattern online at the fabulous blog The Vintage Pattern Files that has a pattern for pretty much everything you could imagine from Victorian to the 1970s. Browsing the "1930s" tab, I decided on this 1935 Simple Jumper because I loved the art deco-ish neckline.

Paired with a self-made (no pattern used) 1930s-style skirt I made, the sweater goes perfectly. Added a belt for that extra 1930s touch! I am very happy with it. My grandmother knows my favorite colors are pink and red so I'm extra happy. I'm scared to wear it, though, lol.

Sailor/Nautical Chic!

1915:

1915 was a very pivotal year for fashion. It was the year restrictive Victorian styles began to give way to what would evolve into breezy 1920s styles. This is the earliest nautical styled dress I've seen in the Sears catalogs.

1921:

Nautical-style Middie blouses were popular throughout the Great War and early 1920s.

1922:

1924:

1924 is the last time nautical-styled clothing appears in the Sears catalogs for several years. Deco-styled "flapper" dresses will dominate. Perhaps they were "over" the Great War and didn't want to dwell on it...;)

1931:

Sailor girls begin to show up again in 1931. The heyday of nautical travel!

40 Years of Fashion Evolution Before Your Very Eyes

Here it is -- the 40 most important years in fashion from the pages of Sears catalogs. This is what everyday people would have worn. Let's start in 1910. It was still practically Victorian times in 1910, but BIG changes were about to come and they haven't stopped to the current day. But we're going to stop in 1950 for the sake of my blog and my tastes.

Fashion from every year starting in 1910 and ending in 1950. Enjoy.
