Cute little pullover top in a dusty peach creped silk The fronts of the straps have pleated ends. Straight neckline and cut straight and loose fitting down the sides. Faux pocket with little blue hanky. Blue and white embroidered flowers. There are stitched lines on each side of the flower. No openings to get in and out of the top, so it's a bit of a squeeze, no stretch to the fabric. The straps are only pinned in place, like the top was never finished. I'll leave it to the new owner to stitch them in place according to your own liking.

Condition - Appears to be unworn since the straps aren't quite finished. Very good condition, but lightly dirty across the front and back from storage.

#20L-476- 1920s Black and Coral Rayon Jersey 3pc Pajamas - $60.00

Era - 1920s

Label - MunsingWear, medium
Fabric - rayon jersey
Cleaning - Dry clean only, or the black dye will run.

I love vintage rayon jersey, such a cool feeling fabric. This 3 piece set is a dark coral nd black jersey knit. Sleeveless top with bow on the front and tiny trimmed pocket. The loose fitting pants have elastic waist with lots of stretch and hold left in them, slightly tapered legs. Open and loose fitting jacket in black with coral trim.

Condition - Very good condition. The previous wearer has stitched 2 small floral appliques on the side of the jacket (photo #6) probably to cover small holes. No other holes seen on any of the pieces. There are faint black smudges on each piece from being stored folded for years with the black against the coral. There is a very faint area across the front of the top (which doesn't show well in photo #7) otherwise the black is just very faint marks on the other pieces. Not terrible, still a fab, wearable set.

Very fine white cotton batiste panties with elastic waist/ Very large size and large, loose fitting legs. Leg openings are trimmed in cotton lace and there are strips of inset lace and a very finely done lace square on each leg-front.
