Vintage 60s Elsie Tu Cardigan Sweater Jac Trapunto Embroidery S
This vintage 1960s Elsie Tu embroidered cardigan sweater is very ladylike, and very chic! A simple silhouette, in keeping with high end fashion of the times, with a rounded neckline and fully fashioned 3/4 length raglan sleeves. The sweater is embellished with stylized floral buds, leaves and stems, embroidered in 3-D trapunto style in several shades of cool green. There are large embellsihments on the front and upper back, with smaller motifs on the sleeves and lower back.
Medium to heavy weight knit in an elegant shade of olive green- I believe this is wool, but there is nowhere to snip a bit for a fiber burn test. The embellishment is done in three other shades of green ranging from pale and icy to the inside of an avocado to forest green.

N/A, the sweater has no buttons or fasteners of any kind.
The two small light green buds at the innermost edge of the left lower front has some very faint yellowish discoloration on the trapuntoed embroidery threads. It's difficult to see unless you look straight at it. Also, a pinhole on the right rear sleeve - see closeup. No other stains and no other holees - no tears or snags.
