Love hand-finished details? Then this sweater will knock you out!
Hundreds of hours must have gone into the finishing of this cardigan! Made from a fine knit silk base, the entirety of this piece has hand-stitched silk ribbons adorning it. This mid to late 50's piece features 3/4 length sleeves and a perfectly scalloped center front and hem. Even the buttons are covered in little swirls of silk ribbon. The overall condition of this piece is good and very wearable, however there is some obvious fading/color damage (most likely the sun was the culprit). It would not be difficult to dye this piece (and this is an option if you're interested, please reach out to me, as I have professional dyeing experience), however I adore the color so much that I couldn't bring myself to dye it outright. I have repaired a few stitches but after careful inspection, aside from the discoloration, this piece is in perfect condition.
