Colored Knit Pick n' Mix

A colorized image from a 1930s knitting booklet (shown below) gave me the idea to start mixing and matching some of my own 30s sets & separates.  Here are a couple of colour combos I tried out:

30s Peach Crocheted Top with Light Blue Knitted skirt



Peach top again with green knitted skirt

i always loved gowns because i'm not very skilled in pairing vintage separates!
i don't know why people say light blu and pink don't match,to me are lovely together!

I love that top, so gorgeous. It looks so lovely with both the light blue and the green skirt. So perfect for spring.

thanks, dolls! I'm thinking I love the green with the peach best, but would totally wear the peach with the pale blue this spring, too! Fun to experiment! I wish peach was an easier colour for me to wear, though. Definitely tricky for me to rock the orange colour group...or pastels, really. Oh, well, that's what bronzer is for! :)

Peach and blue is lovely, I especially like the hat in the first pic, that would be so YOU

Emily said...

What a great idea!! I really love the peach with the green -- it's a great combination, one I would never have thought of.

Very simple and elegant. I love the shoes! Peach and green go great!

Ah, I can always count on you to post more outfits for me to daydream about! (Especially the knitteds!) I like both pairings but I must say that I’m more taken with the green and peach…… and I have to mention that hat….. ooow arhhh- isn’t that just something! Tups x

BaronessVonVintage said...

thanks again! my celluloid bracelet actually gave me the idea that orange & green could go (I also have a fun 30s cotton plaid dress, my "peas n' carrots" frock, that is this same colour palette); am happy with the pair up!

Miss Rayne, Tickety Boo: I think I need to attempt to make myself that hat...unless some kind soul wanted to take pity on this knittedly challenged baroness and make me one ? hhehehe ;)

Tat's such a great idea. I definitely love the second one best - both combos look great but the green and peach is so striking!

Actually, I think peach suits you so well! I myself have troubles with pastel colors, as Coco Chanel said; why would any woman want to look as a cake :), but if mixed with other tones, they can really look nice.
For ex, this peach top I'd pair it with a chocolate brown skirt. Maybe it's too conventional, but I like it.

Baroness, you're one and only in aaaaaaaall blogland.
