1950s Yellow Cashmere Vintage Cardigan with Embroidery SZ S-M
1950s Yellow Cashmere Vintage Cardigan with Embroidery SZ S -M

This is so sweet. It's a Braemar cashmere cardigan in soft yellow with grosgrain covered buttons and grosgrain interior button band. The embroidered flowers and leaves are in autumn colors around the shoulder and neckline, with small motifs on the sleeves. This was done by another company, as the decorator/design company would buy the cashmere sweaters already finished and then do their embroidery, crewelwork or applique.

Size: Measurements taken flat and un-stretched. Bust: 36", Waist:26", Shoulders: 15.5", Sleeves: 17", CB Neck to Hem: 17".

1950s Vintage Black Linen Weave Jacket by Irene Lentz SZ S

This is one of several Irenes we just got in. So exciting! This black linen weave jacket has a wonderful, difficult cut with a curved front yoke seam with sharp angles and a front hip line fitted with a beautifully cut and sewn curved dart. There is a small pocket set into the curved waist seam. The jacket closes with Irene's signature button variety. The top and bottom buttons are Mother of pearl with a metal Japanese figure and metal backs by Michaud. The peplum has a back vent for movement. The jacket is lined in cream silk.
If you aren't familiar with MGM costume designer and fashion designer Irene Lentz, be sure to look her up. Please note that this is a true black. Photos were lightened as needed for detail.
