BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE VINTAGE 1950 VERY FEMININE SHEER CHANTILLY LACE SWEATER
This is such a feminine '50s vintage sweater adorned with a Chantilly lace collar, bodice and lace appliques on the cuffs.
The lace on the sweater is sheer so skin can be shown through it. So pretty. The sweater is very soft and it may be cashmere or a fine Orlon but there is no label so I do not know for sure. Full fashioned sweater which is the best type of sweater that you can get. Tiny snap at the top of the sweater with 4 pearl buttons under that. The sweater is missing 4 pearl buttons so I would just replace all the buttons as these tiny round pearl buttons can be purchased at a fabric store.
So feminine and just adorable!
By: No tag
Size: This is a very small sweater and is shown on my size 6 model which has these measurements Bust: 34.2 Inches Waist: 25.2 and it was almost tight on that so go by the measurements for a good fit.
Appx Measurements - The measurements are of the sweater - not your figure. You must be a few inches smaller than the measurements shown.
Bust: Measures 34 but it barely fit on my model so you must be several inches smaller.
Shoulder to shoulder: 14-5/8
Sleeve from neck to end: 27-3/4
Length: 21 - 22
Fabric: See above
Care: No tag
Condition: Very good - some light pilling which could be removed and I would suggest a dry cleaning to freshen up the sweater. See above regarding the buttons. Tiny double pinhead holes on the bodice which could be pulled together in a couple of minutes and would not be visible.

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.
