This is a beautiful example of an original 1950's knit but please note it is not perfect and has a considerable number of darns and mends. It needs a true vintage lover or knitting enthusiast to give it a good home. If you are looking for perfection, this piece is not for you.
Knitted in pure wool in a charming shade of light reseda green, it has a deep rib, which gives a close fitting waist, and a charming lace bodice and sleeves. It fastens down the back neck with little poppers and has glass buttons for decorative detail.
Will fit a 34” bust maximum and a 25" waist maximum
Please note the neck is very small and it won't fasten on my mannequin. You need a very slim neck if you want to fasten the top button.
Wounded but wearable. There are a significant number of darns on this piece, as can be seen in the photos. There are a lot on the main rib and lots within the lace section. It also has some minor underarm felting. It has been carefully washed and pressed and is ready to wear.
This piece can only be posted within the UK. Postage is free on this item.
