This is undoubtedly the most beautiful beaded cardigan we have ever seen, with beading detail also on the cuffs and in a selection of perfect colours.
Our cardigans are made using the finest Acrilan yarn which is lightweight, soft, and warm, with a wool-like feel. Sometimes it is used in knitwear as a less expensive alternative to cashmere, due to the similar feeling of the materials.
The Seamstress of Bloomsbury garments are made from the finest quality fabrics, featuring intricate and authentic designs straight from our vintage archive. Our collection is inspired by the work of our dear friend and original 'Seamstress of Bloomsbury', Lilian Wells, who made the most exquisite garments for aristocrats and royalty from around the world in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s. Most of our designs are named after the lovely ladies who Lilian made the garments for, so you'll have a small part of history in each of our garments!
We suggest you care for our clothing in the same way you would for an original 40’s garment!
To wash this garment, we recommend dry cleaning only.

Absolutely beautiful dress made to fit...
"Dear lovely people at The Seamstress of Bloomsbury, thank goodness (and Instagram) I found you – these two blouses make me so happy and I’ll be watching the site from now on. Is it weird to be excited already to see what you do for Winter? Both items are unworn apart from 3 minutes in my bedroom swishing around in front of my husband. Many thanks.”

Immediately fell in love with it...
"I’m very happy with my purchases. The clothes are absolutely beautiful and of great quality. I bought the 43’’ Swing Coat and when my mom saw it she immediately fell in love with it and asked me to buy one for her. The coat looks great on both of us.
Also thanks to the people from the customer service for being so nice and patient for helping me out."

Lovely cheery pattern...

The dress came immediately and the help I received when ordering was excellent."
Effortlessly vintage chic...
"I have bought many times from them. Their prints are so unique and I love how they have many different prints and colours for each style.

Absolutely beautiful dress made to fit...
"Very flattering fit, beautiful fabric, cunning, cunning design that made my belly look flat (magic!!) and hit all the 1940's styling points to make me feel like a saucy seaside postcard girl. Very much worth the money."
"Just perfect. I don't often give 5 stars but this deserves it. Fits beautifully, true to size, lovely simple vintage style with the bow and cute shirring around shoulders. Fabric has nice "body" to it, doesn't feel cheap or "raggy." And the shade was perfect. Thank you, I will definitely be making more purchases from this store."
