I received a beautiful set of photos of a vintage crochet dress recently from Elizabeth who would love to get more information about this dress. Does anyone have any thoughts about what crochet pattern might have been used or what the stitches are? Any guesses as to the era that the dress might have come from? Would love to know your suggestions!
I was asked if I’d be interested in sharing this post with my readers and I thought it was interesting enough that I agreed to share.
What was going on in the world of crochet in 1942? Let’s discover …
Kathy explained to me that she had received a pile of things from her husband’s parents’ house. Her sisters-in-law didn’t want the items but she was amazed to discover the treasure of a vintage crochet filet flag. She loved it immediately and had it framed, but she didn’t have any information about the piece.
I’m continuing my steady research into vintage crochet history. We finished up 1930s crochet and started with 1940 last month. So that means today I’m checking out what happened in crochet in 1941.
It’s time to begin a new decade in my research into vintage crochet history. We finished up 1930s crochet and now let’s move into the 1940’s, starting, of course, with the first year of the decade. Here’s what I found so far in crochet from 1940.
I’m planning to curate as much crochet history information as possible, decade by decade. My research began with a deep investigation into 1930s crochet, which I’ve collected in year-by-year posts. I thought I’d round up that information in one post today to share everything I now know about crochet in the 1930s!
