Vintage 1950s Cashmere Sweater - Gorgeous Embroidery Beading Velvet Flower + Wheat Cardigan (Juli Lynne Charlot Imitator) Size M to XL
•Highlights: from an extensive one-person collection of quality vintage full-fashioned cardigans, these make beautiful, hard-working pieces to wear or to gift; silk velvet flowers with embroidered stems and sparkling glass beaded details, touched with gold metallic wirework on the heads of "wheat"; one cuff is embellished, too!
•Colors: ivory with muted rose, ruby, butter, pale blue, teal, and olive accents
•Fabric: wool yarn and silk velvet (flowers) on super soft cashmere -- it's not labeled but it's unmistakably so!
•Closures: carved pearly shell buttons
•Designer/Labels: Unlabeled Juli Lynne Charlot imitator of some kind. If examined with a forensic eye (and my readers!), I can see signs of where a wide designer label would have been attached at the back neckline that's the same size and shape as JLC labels were. The cardigan itself is the same "blank" used in many of her cardigans. However it's likely that this was a piece made by another company in an effort to capture the same kinds of buyers.
The quality, whimsy, and detail are wonderful. I love how the floral design spills over the existing seams of the cardi! Missing the label, it's priced on its own merits.
All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.
About a M to XL. Works for a range depending on the fit you like; please allow room for ease
Bust (underarm area doubled) about 41" fully closed down the front, 48" pulled more tight
Waistband area about 15" slack, 35" more taut
Shoulder to hem about 20 1/4"
Shoulders about 16"
Sleeves, shoulder to cuff about 20" (bracelet length)
Great vintage condition. Clean and shows very light signs of age. 60+ years old.
To note: the rear neckline area has one tiny-tiny old darn to a hole that would've been created when the label was yanked. This tiny imperfection is nearly invisible from the outside, and is covered by many hairstyles.
One other quirk worth a mention: the waistband was folded under and hand-sewn to give this cardigan a more "cropped" look. The original last two buttonholes were closed, and one of the original buttons remains underneath as a spare. This all would have been done before the cardigan was sold to an end-user. I've had owned other sweaters that were customized in similar ways by various companies.
