D E T A I L S
• 1950s sweater dress
• fit + flare shape
• bouclé (subtle) knit wool
• circus poodles with umbrella + ball
• cream, kelly green, red, + chartreuse with details in metallic gold lurex
• curved v-neckline with a pop of green
• short sleeves with a pop of green at the hem
• fitted waist with elastic woven through the knit loops along the bodice's hem + skirt's waist; meant to be worn with a belt
• full skirt with wide ribbed knit design
• pullover fit, no closures
• unlined
• label: Hand Made from the Needles of Marie Schoenfeld | San Leandro, California

A NOTE ON STYLE: It's likely that this dress originally came with a coordinating belt, though it was not with the dress when I found it. I have included this vintage gold belt as it brings out the metallic gold details in the poodles very nicely. The dress is being sold with the belt.

Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! Several very small holes have been darned and most aren't even noticeable, though there is one which is modestly noticeable if you're looking for it. The green lining along the neckline has splotches of discoloration (not staining, just bleached perhaps), but these aren't at all seen when worn. A handful of scattered very small, suuuper faint spots which I was able to lighten but not fully get out through spot treating and hand washing; they're very faint so they won't really be noticeable when worn. The elastic at the waist has been replaced.
