Vintage 1960s Red Crochet Top Hand Knit Pullover Size M
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a vintage 1960s red pullover top that is hand crochet knitted. The top has a scoop neckline front and back, short sleeves and is made in an over-the-hip length. It is unlined so you would have to wear something underneath. It is knit with four different stitching patterns - the sleeves have a very open stitching, the top edge of the bodice being a little more detailed but still fairly open, while the skirt is a little open and the body of the bodice having the tightest knit. It has no closures - one simply slips this over one’s head. The skirt of the piece flares out at the waist so that it falls in drapes - it is very wide at the bottom (note hemline measurement below).
Label: None - this was hand knit.
Material: Unsure - the yarn has a sheen to it and the piece is quite heavy and falls beautifully, so probably rayon or a blend of some sort.
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit, keeping the style of the garment in mind (please measure your body or a similar garment that you might own for comparison):
Bust: 34 around, but there is stretch to the knit, so probably could accommodate a 36” bust
Waist: 32” around
Hips: Full - 50” around, meant to fall loosely
Hemline: 104” around
Overall length: 27”, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition with no wear, tear or soiling. This top looks to have seen very little use and was well cared for over the years.
This is a striking top - gorgeous tone of red, beautifully made, a unique handmade piece that is sure to be noticed!
