One of the most widely circulated magazines during the Victorian era was the Godey's Lady's Book which inspired the name for this knit sweater top with dramatic leg of mutton puff sleeves. Soft and medium weight, this top is ideal worn alone for warmth though not thick enough to be a sweater to layer over another blouse. Pair it with the First Edition Skirt and Pierre Boater Hat for a truly inspired Victorian Bike riding outfit!

From over a decade's worth of experience as a vintage clothing seller and collector, we are sharing some general care and laundering advice gleaned from women of the past. Practicing these "vintage" methods is another way to be more sustainable.
- Wear a slip with your garments to keep your garments cleaner longer (in most cases it takes much less water/resources to launder a slip than it does a garment)
- Wear your garments more than once before laundering
- Use cold water to launder your garments, hot water can deconstruct the fibers of your garments more and also can cause shrinkage.
- If using a machine, only wash full loads of laundry
- Hang garments to dry (every Adored Vintage girl loves seeing clothes on a line!) Dryers can really be rough on your garments (that lint trap is literally bits of your clothes as it slowly falls apart!)
- Spot clean garments immediately
- Hand wash your clothing as often as possible.
- Learn simple repair and mend skills to increase the longevity of your garments.
