Grey Skirt and 1930s Style

I'm in full Christmas-mode. The decorating isn't done yet but the gift creating is almost done. I love making gifts instead of buying them. Some of my presents this year were made from stuff I already had, but I did need to buy a few supplies. So Britt and I headed to the craft store. While we were there, she snapped a few outfit photos for me. It was too dark outside for photos so we took them in the middle of the yarn aisle (ie my natural habitat). Despite a few odd looks, it was a lot of fun. 

I'm wearing my new grey skirt. It is 1930's style and high-waisted. The fabric definitely needs some static-guard or something though. It was clinging to my legs like crazy! I paired it with my 1930s-style sweater and knitted hat. The hat I knitted from a free 1930s pattern. My Ravelry page for the project (with a link to the pattern) can be found here. Feel free to add me as a friend if you are also on Ravelry!

This last picture is from a few weeks ago and has nothing to do with anything. I just thought it was an awesome teapot. 

That's All.


  1. I love it! Especially the sweater details and the cute hat. It makes me want to learn to knit. I crochet, but can't knit.

  2. That is a gorgeous outfit and the cat is amazing. The 1930s are my favorite era. Im not a very good knitter but Ill have to check out that hat.

  3. Fabulously fun outfit and spot in which to model it. I really love your long strings of beads (or are they pearls?). I rarely necklaces that dangle much beyond my bust (no particular reason why), but it's a look I really like and always enjoy seeing on others.
