Just a short post to introduce you all to my new cardigan; it may not actually be my dream cardi (as suggested by the title), but it is dreamy:
It's not often that I find anything decent in op-shops, anymore. So, when I saw this lovely (for only 4$) I snapped it up straight away. It's definitely 1950s style but I'm not sure when this actually dates to. There's a little hole on one of the sleeves and some discolouration but with something this cute, and this cheap, it really doesn't matter!
It fits me almost perfectly and it's a little itchy but I'm willing to make allowances. I'm just dying for some 1940s (or 40s style) knitwear but it's so hard to find! And I'm more than willing to knit my own (once I can figure out how to work with vintage patterns) but it's so expensive to knit up a whole sweater!
Or, perhaps, it just seems more expensive because I'm rather a bit strapped for cash, at the moment. Have been thinking of selling some of my 70s/80s, etc. I no longer want/need on etsy, maybe, and perhaps setting up an account to sell prints of my artwork, seeing as no one wants to employ me, at the moment. Thoughts?
Ahem. Anyway, isn't my new cardigan lovely?
