Vintage 1930s 1940s Sweater Dress / Ann Adams Originals




Adorable vintage 1930s to 1940s two piece sweater dress by Ann Adams Originals in a dusty peach wool knit with an intricate pattern of silk cording, glass pearls and beads down the front. Cardigan sweater has dolman sleeves and covered buttons. Skirt has elastic at the waist. 

This is a rare set. Ann Adams wool knits are hard to find in matching sets, in particular the ones with beading such as this. 

This set is in good condition, the beading is excellent, but otherwise the set does need some repair as there are scattered holes throughout both pieces, there is some light discoloration on the skirt which should come out with professional cleaning. Please see the last photo for some of these issues.  

This set it is priced at a significant discount and sold as is.
