This cardigan has a Nina Ricci Paris label, which dates it to the 70s. The label is very loosely attached and the fiber and size labels are gone. I am almost positive that it is cashmere; it has that lovely feel.
This sweater is a pale cream color.
It is a v-neck cardigan with a 7-button closure. The buttons and buttonholes are reinforced with grosgrain ribbon. The underarm seams are also reinforced. The long sleeves end in 5 in ribbing with outside seams, they are meant to be turned back to a 2 ½ in cuff.
• 21 in across the chest
• 27 inches total back
• 17 ½ in across bottom
• 25 in from shoulder seam to bottom of seam
This is a classic sweater with very nice dressmaker features.
