Vintage periwinkle blue 1980s does 1930s? handmade jumper - can’t decide!
This is one of those that has had me second guess myself a few times. I initially thought 70s. Jury is still almost out in my head, collar looks earlier but I am leaning on later because of the sleeve and slightly synthetic feeling rayon thread.. it’s silky slippery.
(It came from the same lady’s great aunt, along with a very pretty 40s crepe and some smart fifties suits.. then more matronly 60s outerwear - I’ll let you make up your own mind, but don’t be fooled by the buttons as I am afraid I added them as missing the originals. Would be nice with glass ones!)
Completely handmade, one little construction flaw I noticed and the odd slightly pulled open work section but overall excellent. You can re-distribute most pulls in the knit. Ready to wear.
Measures: Very drapey fit to bust!
Waist at ribbing 28” unstretched, to 32”
Length from nape to hem approx 20”
Underarm to cuff 20”
As above, clean and ready to wear. Picture against white for better colour representation.
