"Larry Aldrich" Vintage 1960's Marie McCarthy For Larry Aldrich Beaded & Embroidered Waistcoat UK 10-12 US 6-8


This truly magnificent 1960's waistcoat by Marie McCarthy for Larry Aldrich, rendered in a woven cream wool and embellished with trailing gold soutache embroidery, cream silk embroidery, pearlescent beads, iridescent claw set rhinestones, and silver rhinestones, finished with gold bugle beads and rounded gold beads, in a paisley pattern,  is a rare piece to behold. 

The V shaped neckline of the waistcoat, is framed by a simple shoulder line and a sleeveless cut. The neckline and arm holes are edged with borders of floral and geometric beadwork and embroidery, framing the paisley pattern along the bodice and back of the waistcoat. The simple cut of the bodice draws in with a single hook and eye, setting off the tailored darts along the bust-line and simple elegant line of the piece. This waistcoat is fully lined in silk.
