1970s handknit sailboat top for 2-year-old child

29 AUD

Skilfully hand knitted short sleeve jumper / vest top featuring a little sailboat in yellow, red and navy! I love how the blue and white stripe background turns into waves - such a clever design! Fairly light 'wool' - feels like cotton, so this top could be worn in Spring or Autumn as a light jumper. Light pilling all over and the neck opening is a little bit stretched, still plenty of life in this piece though!
Era: 1970s or 80s
Estimated size: Australian size 2 for 2-year-old child

Childlike Empress Vintage is a collection of sweet vintage clothing for babies and little kids. Hand-knitted jumpers, hand-sewn onesies, art smocks & sailor suits. Often a little bit wonky, sometimes a little bit worn, but so obviously full of love that I couldn't help but smile when I found them!

My name is Helen - I live in Perth, Western Australia, and spend most of my free time hunting for fun bits & pieces from times gone by.  

I hope you'll find something here that will make you smile, and maybe make a bub in your life smile, too!

Please note - I try to describe the sizing and condition of my pieces as accurately and clearly as I can, but please contact me if you would like any more information.
