This is 1930s era hand knit wool vest most likely home made by a skilled knitter. The vest is made in a combination of peach pink, white and blue wool in tones very much associated with the 1930s. The vest has an accented waistline, a V shaped neckline and does up with eight pink plastic buttons down the front - there are no buttonholes per se, but a loop stitch down the edge, so that you can button up in a corresponding slot. There is an applied pocket at either side at the bottom front.
Sizing: No size is indicated, and although this should fit a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:
Shoulders: 16” from outside edge to outside edge
Bust: 35” around, taken under the arms, unstretched
Waist: 26” around, but has stretch to it
It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear or tear, but with one small repair to a hole at the bottom back, really not noticeable.
This is a very nice vintage piece of knitting……pretty colours!
