Embroidered Cashmere Sweater
A natural colored cashmere sweater
is lavishly appliquéd with hand
embroidery in the style of Helen
This sweater was designed by Ann
Pakradooni for Joie de Vivre, her
exclusive boutique on the Main Line
of Philadelphia. The large scale
floral bouquet on the back of the
sweater was meticulously cut and
appliquéd by hand. The exquisite
Chinese hand embroidery was taken
from a 19th century shawl or coat.
Smaller matching motifs are seen on
both sides of the cardigan front.
The cuffs and hem have been turned
under for a snug fit, and the
sweater is lined in silk chiffon.
There is one small spot near the
side seam of the lining g which does
not show on the outside. The sweater
is in excellent condition.
