High-contrast sweater in black & taupe --- comprising bricks, lines, blanket-stitched borders & art-deco appliques. Slinky, with the feel and heavy hang of a St John Santana knit, circa 1970s. Striped ribbing cinches the waist and cuffs. Shoulders are emphasized with a white cotton crochet --- a flower set against lattice-weave. Keyhole back. Gathered, puff sleeves.
size & fit- medium
shoulders (seam-to-seam): 14 1/2"
bodice (shoulder-to-waist): 20 1/2"
condition**- very good
Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted minor issue: two tiny holes at underarm have been invisibly-mended.
Noted alteration: button/loop closure at back has been replaced with a hook & eye.
** Vintage items are precious, pre-owned pieces of history. Many have unique dyes and handcrafted prints, artisan weaves and intricate hand-tailoring -- details no longer available except in modern couture. Please love & respect your vintage.
