Recently, I stumbled across a beautiful vintage embroidered sweater - and then of course went looking for more. Here's part of my online scrapbook.
The little pearl beads and buttons are beautiful but beware of the belly gape!
This is the perfect late winter/early spring cardigan. After all, there are pansies everywhere, at least in my neighborhood.
Sasha Kagan, perhaps? This cropped cardigan from Versailles, Kentucky reminds me of her work. Check out the cover of Sasha's new book, Sasha Kagan's Classic Collection, and you'll see what I mean.
Here's another relatively simple white cardigan. I love white sweaters. People rarely make them; I think knitters want to play with color and I do, too. But I love wearing white sweaters. They both soften and brighten my complexion.
I adore bright blue and white together so this sweater particularly appeals to me. Kind of Hawaiian or something.
Doesn't this little daisy and pearl cardigan look like something Ysolda might design?
Let's go to the hop! Let's go to the hop! C'mon, let's go to the hop! I think this song was playing when I was conceived in 1958. Hard to believe that song (and me!) are both so old.
