Too sweet for words vintage 1950s 50s cardigan.

✧ by Sophie Original -- early American label
✧ stretchy black knit with textured black linen trim
✧ tons of black velvet bows + flowers appliqued throughout
✧ hooks at the neck + at the waistband for an open fit in the middle

This truly is the little black 1950s cardigan of your dreams -- if only it fit me, I would never ever let it go! I adore nearly anything with a black-on-black motif, and the velvet bow appliques all over this beauty are just too perfect for words. The open center will show off whatever sweet blouse or dress you choose to pair it with, and will add an ultra flirty edge to your outfit. This sweater really is such a beautiful piece that you are sure to treasure for all your years!

This beautiful sweater was made over 50 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and very rare!!
