Isn’t it lovely?
This is one of my favorite vintage/historical yarnworks. This wool sweater is from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is ca. 1895. The mutton sleeves are just wonderful! I would wear this today, wouldn’t you? One day I am going to make something like it…one day. But until then, it will be one of my favorite inspiration pieces.
Do you have a favorite handmade inspiration piece, or have you made a project based on an inspiration piece? I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment or a link to your blog post.
