Fashion - 1925

Thank goodness its all over and we can get back to normal!!!!!  (Whatever "normal" actually is!)  I don't really like this time of year and am so glad when the festivities are all over!  I thought to start the year off, you might like to see some images from "The Needlewoman" of October 1925.  The artwork is just amazing!



Here's a pattern for a knitted dress.


Or a hat and scarf!

Even the adverts are lovely!


Wishing you all the best for the year ahead.

Love Liz

Nice dress! My husband said he always wanted a pair of knitted trousers! I have a cool pattern from the 70s, so maybe . . . !

Very interesting, and the last photo, I really like what they did with that. I always have so much fun looking at all ads, and what they actually sold back then. For Christmas this year I bought my husband an old copy of Mechanix Illustrated from September 1948, and it sold back then for 15 cents, and our youngest son had the best fun reading through it. I couldn't believe he ignored all the new stuff for Christmas and studied that!

What a stunning illustration - the colours are divine. and I have to say, that hat looks rather gorgeous too. Happy Back to Normality - I am sorry to see all the decorations gone this year...

Happy New Year to you Liz and I wish you all the best for 2013
A lovely book there - I admire greatly that people would knit EVERYTHING including underwear!
Best wishes
