This is a very nice quality Cashmere sweater made in black with a dark mink collar. The sweater is made in a cardigan style and closes with four shell buttons at the front. The mink collar is affixed with 3 pins with tabs, so could be removed and used elsewhere if desired. The sweater was re-modeled in order to accommodate the collar and also, I guess, just to change the style. The hemline is turned in by 2 3/8” - there are two buttons still present on the interior. You can easily undo this if you wanted to restore it to its original length. Also, the neckline has been turned in at the top two buttons - again, this could be undone if desired. It would appear also that the cuff of either sleeve was stitched to create at “pulled” look. The interior is finished in a semi transparent black crepe fabric.
Label: Imported Cashmere Yarn.
Material: Cashmere & Mink
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a medium size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 19” across shoulder seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 24” long from shoulder seam
Sleeve Inseam: 16”
Bust: 40” around
Waist: 24” around unstretched, stretches out to 31” around
Overall length: 19”
It is in very good condition aside from the re-modeling. Otherwise, there is no pronounced wear and the sweater is free of holes, tear, stains and odors. The mink collar is fresh and supple - it has been well cared for over the years.
