This beautiful sweater is the result of an inspired collaboration between a knitter and an embroiderer. It is a one of a kind, unique piece and dates to the 1960's.
Style is long sleeved, box cut and the size is medium. Full measurements below.
Made from soft, creamy white mohair, with drop sleeves, low crew neck and a 4 knitted button closure.
The yoke has been embroidered with masses of blooming flowers in many colours, using a combination of clusters of French knots for the centers and satin and outline stitching for the petals and leaves. The effect is very 3 dimensional! Whisper thin white synthetic lining with anchor knots to keep it all in place.
I would say that this would fit a US 12 to 14 or UK 14 to 16.
Condition is excellent.
Length nape to hem: 23"
Width shoulder to shoulder: 16.5"
Sleeve length shoulder to cuff: 22.5"
Bust: 38" (approx.)
Hips: 38" (approx.)
