    Good morning/afternoon/night to all!

    Found this adorable vest in a charity and I assume it dates to the 1960s/1970s due to the tag. My grandmother recalls that this boutique, Antonieta Modas, was around before 1964. She even asked me if it still existed after that year. Any idea as to when this was made?

    Thanks in advance.

    A 1970s look in my memory. Worn with high waisted, wide legged pants and a blouse with long collar points or a ribbed mock turtle neck.

    Did I own this outfit? I'm not saying.

    Hahaha! Thanks Hollis, '70s is quite what I had in mind. And that outfit sounds glamorous! I might give it a try. :D

    Not quite the same thing, but your description reminded me of this 70s pattern - the outfit second from right, Hollis :).
