The 1960’s top on the right looks very plain but it’s knitted of a yarn with sparkle, even though it is not a dressy design. Just a cute, everyday item with Happy Days style (and looks much better on my mannequin, “Madge”, than on the hanger – couldn’t wait to get it home).
The cardigan on the left is the star of this post. Of soft wool, it is hand-embroidered and the body is lined. Full-fashioned with hand-tailored details, as was usually the case with good-quality garments made before 1965 or so. Though there is no tag saying so, it may have been made in British Hong Kong, as many of them were.
Wait till you see the next things I’ve come up with . . . . . . .
