I usually find 1930s knitting patterns for jumpers and cardigans quite attractive - many of them could be adapted for today without much difficulty, except that they are usually in a small size and often stop at the waist. But one thing about 1930s fashion that I don't like is that women were not properly dressed out of doors without a hat. I never wear a hat except to keep the weather off, so I would have found that hard to cope with. And proper hats from a milliner seem to have been very expensive (I have vague memories from books and films of indulgent husbands suggesting that their wives should buy a hat to cheer themselves up, or wives guiltily spending the housekeeping on a new hat.) So if you had to have a hat but hadn't got the money, what did you do? Obviously, you made one.
The other model, "Christine" is knitted in the same yarn: "This is perhaps the newest hat of the season. It has height which strikes quite a new note. A plain bar chromium pin fastened at the side is the only decoration. The original of this model was carried out in Royal Blue."
