Vintage 1960s Mohair Cardigan Sweater with Floral Embroidery Ladies Size L


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This product is unavailable

This is a vintage cardigan style sweater that dates to the 1960s.  It is made in a cream colour and decorated with floral embroidery over its entire front and at the top of the back.  The embroidery is in various colours - blue, purple, violet, pink, red, brown yellow, green and orange with metallic gold accent threads.  It has a “jewel” neckline and closes with six covered buttons.  The body of the sweater is lined in white acetate and the buttonholes are backed with a length of acetate to protect against hole wear.  Although it is not stated, I believe that these sweaters were made in Italy.
