  5. Linda, do you wear all (or most or some of) your fabulous sweaters?

    And wow, I really want the set with the bleeding heart dripping down the skirt. Fab!

    A 1941 newspaper had an article that stated: "The Strand is presenting an entirely adequate show this week...It is called 'Hollywood Sweater Girl Revue' and features such sweater-wearing screenettes as Mary Healey, Anne Nagel, and Barbara Pepper."

    From a different 1941 newspaper is the publicity below...

    The label supplies a lot of additional info - what price it originally retailed for, what sizes it came in, who it was aimed at. Great share.

    I love this thread. I had and recently sold the Ranger sweater and yesterday was excited to find the totem sweater in white and blue. Always a thrill to find.

    How fun. Love it. Now I will be on lookout for more with this theme.

    Side note to Alice.
    That gorgeous red beaded cashmere cardigan in your shop is to die for.
    Wish it fit me.

    Linda, I meant any clothing with this theme like the scarf I posted. Love your sweaters.

    Linda that racing car design appears to be based on early british racing car, and the colour goes with the theme - it's known in the trade as racing green, and many a vintage car will be painted this colour. A fact I only know because both my father and uncle have vintage cars!

    Love them all - particularly the piano keys and music notes.
