Outfit: the forgotten 40s jumper

It’s getting cold now… but a small part of me does like the part where you’re reunited with everything you loved the last time it was miserable outside.
In fact, this little jumper I completely forgot about last year because it was so well buried. Not this year! Now I don’t wear much vintage, as I always say, but this top is a small concession to real vintage style – it’s made by Rocket Originals who specialise in recreating old 40s patterns. My jumper is apparently from an authentic vintage pattern.
The lighting when I took these photos was awful – there’s not a lot you can do with such an overcast sky – but in case you can’t work it out, the jumper is very dark navy. It also has the slightest of puffed sleeves, which is oh so cute.
And with the jumpers priced around £40 each, I think that’s pretty good value for money when the product is so unique. I love this year’s Fairisle versions, which, I note, are the same shape as my jumper here.
