Utterly Pretty Vintage 60s Embroidered Cardigan Sweater -
Embroidery transforms this vintage cardigan from understated to absolutely pretty. We love these Hong Kong pieces that date from the 60s. They did the best embroidery n Hong Kong.
This is a cream sweater that's as soft as cashmere, but likely a blend of wool, angora and rabbit hair. Just look at that pretty baby blue satin trim. It's also got self-fabric buttons that match the trim. The sleeves are three-quarter length.
Originally sold at The Compass Rose in St. Thomas, St. Croix, Virgin Islands, you just know that the woman who originally owned this was of a certain means and liked to buy nice things while on vacation.
If you're looking for a lovely heirloom dress sweater, then look no further. We're pretty surprised this one isn't making its way into our own closet. It's quite special and absolutely pretty.
EXCELLENT. No flaws found.
