This pinkish-beige, super-soft orlon acrylic cardigan sweater from the 1950s could also be described as a bolero, since it only fastens at the neck. The original owner added the dainty pearl and glass beading and gold/ivory braid trim to this commercially made cardigan—a crafty and cute addition! The bracelet-length sleeves and hem end in ribbed trim (with part of the ribbed hem turned under, when the braid trim was added). Two hooks fasten the cardigan at the round neckline, and it is unlined. This lightweight orlon/acrylic 1950s sweater will be great for layering in warmer weather! It is in excellent condition.
