Vintage find of the week: 1940s embroidered jacket and scarf
Isn't this gorgeous? It's a 1940s wool jacket and scarf set that I picked up from an estate sale. The sale was being held by the daughter of the woman who originally owned this and she carefully pinned an explanation of what it was to the jacket front. As you can see in the top photo, it was a gift to her mother from her father, a young soldier who served over seas during WWII. The hand embroidery, which is all over both pieces, is simply stunning. Enjoy!
