ANOTHER TRUE VINTAGE DECORATED SWEATER FROM THE 1940'S

Another classic specialty from the 1930’s to the 1960’s was decorated sweaters.  This one is  a unique favorite. It’s casual/dressy and has applique’ and beads on the front, in a very similar technique to the decoration on yesterday’s sweater/blouse collar.  Most of this decoration was done by hand and would be fabulously expensive today.

I like the 3/4 sleeves, the little collar,  the dusty green color and the fabulous flattering fit! Looks great with a skirt or pants.  Keeps me wanting to find more true vintage slacks and skirts to wear with it.

Although it was a casual style, it has a very tailored look to it.  By our standards today, women looked “dressed up” almost no matter what kind of outfit they were wearing.
