SOLD - FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - VINTAGE '50s SPINNERIN BY MILLIKEN ORLON SWEATER ADORNED WITH BEADS & FLORAL APPLIQUES
Was $99.99 - on sale for $79.99
I love these vintage beaded & applique sweaters from the ‘50s/‘60s - this pretty sweater is from my own personal collection & although i have never worn it, someone else may have although it looks new to me
They are perfect for going out at night & dress up whatever outfit you are wearing - not only that but no one will have one like yours as it is totally unique & one-of-a-kind - the evening sweaters they make today most definitely do not compare with the vintage ones which are fabulous
This lovely sweater is in shade of cream in the softest orlon yarn for extra softness & luxury - there are off white pearlized buttons down the front for closure - grosgrain ribbon on the inside under the buttons & button holes to give it strength & to keep the sweater fabric in shape
2-tone yellow & green roses appliques are scattered over the front - white elongated frosty beads are sewn on top of the appliques as well as rounded dark beads - these beads may have been clear 50 - 60 years ago but a lot of these beads of this type have darkened over the years - but they are still pretty as they are - all of the beading & appliques are hand sewn - there are crisp folds in the sweater & it may not have been worn & if it were, it wasn’t much
The sweater is full fashioned which is the best quality that you can get in a sweater - there is light ribbing around the neck at the waist & on the ends of the sleeves which look great turned up
The sweater is very, very soft & is a delight to have on your shoulders - perfect for when dining out in the summer when the restaurant a/c is a bit too cool & also great for a cruise as the cruise ship restaurants are always cold no matter what time of year
Just a very feminine & delicate vintage beaded & appliques orlon sweater which will look gorgeous over any dress, with jeans or a skirt

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.
