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.
