About

A rare and amazing find, these two pieces have remained together and in excellent condition. This Freida Wolf cashmere dress and cardigan set is a rare example of the hand appliqued custom made clothing produced by women in the 1950's and 1960's. Both garments were made by Dalton and hand appliqued by Miss Wolf working in the style of Helen Bond Carruthers. The dress and sweater are a beautiful orange cashmere and the appliques are done in velvet in shades of yellow, green and tan. Beadwork and hand embroidery enhance the design. Both pieces are in excellent condition.
