Embroidered Cashmere Sweater

A natural colored cashmere sweater is lavishly appliquéd with hand embroidery in the style of Helen Bond Caruthers.

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.
