1930s Vintage Sheer Gauze Black Top and Skirt Set • Boho Peasant Top
Wow this is supercool, 30s 40s sheer muslin fabric that's very smooth soft to the touch skirt and top set. The top is in a T shape with short sleeves, just pulls over the head with elasticated waist and a squarish neckline. It's so 30s vamp boho gypsy peasant style and easily one of the best things I've seen in a while.
The muslin fabric of the top is woven with silky threads of blue, purple and orange in horizontal stripes across the top bust area, the rest is dotted in small white squares. The weave is a loose weave, giving it the sheer appearance.
The skirt is plain black with an elasticated waist.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
