This is a vintage sweater dress dating, I believe, to the late 1960s, maybe early 70s. It was made in Italy for luxury department store B. Altman, located on Fifth Avenue in New York City. It is made in a ribbed wool and mohair blend in blue with detailing in red and black. The dress has a large turtleneck and is rather form fitting. The dress simply pulls over the head - there are no other openings than the neck and bottom openings.
Label: Made in Italy for B. Altman Fifth Avenue New York. 67% Wool 26% Kid Mohair 7% Nylon. Commercial Dry Clean Only.
Sizing: The size label reads 14, but this is a vintage sizing. I think that this should fit a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit, taking the stretch of the wool and the style of the dress into account:
Shoulders: 14 1/2” across seam-to-seam
Sleeves: 25” long, from the shoulder seam, with the cuffs unturned
Sleeve inseam: 19”
Bust: 32” around unstretched, taken under the arms, stretches out to 36”
Waist: 22” around, unstretched, stretches out to 31”
Hips: 36” around, unstretched, stretches out to 42”
Overall length: 37“, measured flat
Condition: It is in very good condition, looks like it saw little, if any, use - very clean with no wear.
This is a wonderful vintage sweater dress - nice quality and great look for cooler temps!
