* VINTAGE LEROY KNITWEAR NAUTICAL SWEATER WITH YARN SAILBOATS, ANCHORS AND STARS
I remember when Leroy Knitwear sweaters were sold in stores and they were a coveted sweater for one's collection. The sweaters were the most beautiful knit and so upscale in quality that everyone I knew wanted one. I found this one in one of my containers of vintage clothes and was so excited.
The design and workmanship on the sweater is fabulous. The sweater is a heavy white knit with designs in yarn of sailboats, anchors and stars. It looks as though some of the designs were done by hand as when you look at the yarn on the back, it is not machine stitches which would all be even. They did an impecable job with the making and weaving of the designs. There are 2 pockets on the lower front of the sweater and gold-tone buttons with an anchor on them. Hook & cloth eye at the top. Woven yard stars and anchors on the sleeves and a large sailboat on the back. The sweater looks as though it has never been worn with the crisp folds in the sleeves.
Cute and so unique over a dress, with jeans or slacks and the perfect item for a cruise or when you go sailing on the lake!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
