I've been feeling rather tired, lately, so I've mainly just been recycling old outfits (and wearing trousers an awful lot) which is why I haven't done an outfit post in a little while. Well, the first outfit is mainly recycled but I added a couple of different things since the last time I wore it...
As you can see I'm still living in my saddle shoes! I picked this vest up at Salvo's the other day for only 3.50$! I nearly didn't get it but I figured it was cheaper than knitting one myself.
Here's a close up so you can see my hair...and you can also see my cute little brooch. I got this from Hero Vintage a few months ago.
And now for the second outfit! When I was complaining about not being able to find cute knitwear the other day, I probably ought to have mentioned that my wonderful mother was knitting me up a sweet little cardigan, shouldn't I? (And perhaps, then, not complained quite so much.) She finished it last night and I took it for its first outing today.
(I'm also wearing the trousers she made for me.) Isn't it just a lovely cardigan? It's from an original 1940s pattern booklet that I bought a while ago and it's made with Patons Classic Totem yarn. If I still had a scanner I'd scan in the booklet for the knitters who read my blog. Alas, I do not. Sorry!
Here's a rather terrible shot but it shows off the pattern really well...
I absolutely love my new cardigan. It's actually meant to be for a woman who is slightly bigger than myself (Mum even used larger needles than suggested) but it only just fits me the way it is meant to. But I love it just the same. It's very warm, too! Now to get back to my own knitting...
