Winter is coming and baby needs a sweater, whether you are dressing a child, doll or teddy bear. This 1880's Victorian red wool sweater is amazing to have survived almost 135 years. The sweater was cut and sewn from wool goods, with the cream and red trim hand stitched to edge of the solid red wool. Two yarn thread buttons fasten the front of sweater.
I'm guessing the size may fit a baby about a year old. Measurements: 11-3/4" long from the neck line / shoulder to the hem. 10" across from one shoulder to the other. Chest: 19" around. About 20" around the waist. Measurement of center back is 13-1/2" long.
Condition: Amazing but not perfect. No holes in the red wool. The trim is a more loose weave, even so, very little damage. A couple of holes along the upper portion of the trim near the neck line. Even so, minor. With a couple of stitches it could be fixed, if needed. The buttons are intact, however, the hard backing of one is gone. Because of this, the thread work is not rigid.
A neat Christmas red color for your imagination.
