June's Vintage 60s Cardigan Letterwoman Sweater -
June was the shy, quiet type. Under her yearbook photo, there was a laundry list of school activities--yearbook, newspaper, The Mathletes, honor role, Societé Français, Mission Club and band (fourth chair flute.) Unfortunately, June was so busy that she never seemed to have time to sew all those patches on her Oaklawn Community High School sweater. Lucky for us, she saved her cardigan. Decades after graduation, it ended up here at Lucitebox, modeled by Sabrina.
Naturally, our mannequin wears it well because she's a product of the late '60s, too. Bright green wool trimmed with cream stripes and patches, this fabulous wool cardigan is a fantastic nostalgic piece.
This vintage sweater is adorable and it makes a great conversation piece all the while keeping you warm and trés geekily stylish.
Hole in back of sweater on neck. See photo. Cream / off white colors have aged and yellowed slightly.
