Sweet Disorder Vintage
1940s Embroidered Waistcoat
Vintage 1940s hand-embroidered waistcoat. Traditional folk style probably from Eastern Europe. Cute red piping edges the black wool fabric. Bouquets of cheery forest flowers adorn the chest and waist. They are hand wrought in wool. The front closes with large hooks & eyes. Little metal button at the back of the waistband. Only label present is EU size 40, hand stitched into the vest. Very good condition, there is a small darned spot on the front near the hem (see photo). Gentle overall wear to the fabric consistent with age. No damage or staining. Clean fresh & ready to wear.
