Embroidered 50s Vintage Jacket

150.00 AUD

How fabulous is floral embroidery? Well, embellishment of any kind is fabulous, but floral embroidery in particular I just love.
I unearthed this special piece at a vintage show in Sydney; I was told she dates back to the 50s. It’s not just the embroidery that makes her so fabulous though – the sleeves are also slightly flared and cropped at the perfect length, and the silk fabric makes her drape perfectly on the body. I can just see her paired with some jeans and a tee, perfection.


Condition: A few loose threads and slight fading at neck due to vintage nature of the item.
Material: Silk, with cotton embroidery and vintage bronze button. Fully lined.
Size: S
