Flea Market Finds

                          Welcome Prim Friends                        Off to the Flea Markets 
in search of treasures.
Guess this was my lucky day 
I found lots fun goodies.

Always looking for vintage clothing.
Found some ladies gloves
And these precious soft soled infant shoes
from 1961, with original box.

                    I was very excited to find this vintage dress top.  The bottom shows a raw edge like it was detached.  I don't think it was a skirt as there is no opening for a zipper or hooks and eyes.  The top is large enough that it could have been pulled over the head.  Possibly worn with another high neck lace garment under neath. The top could have been attached to a band or a pendluem. Detail is stunning.  It appears it be black silk with beige lace.  Lace appliques and underneath the flap is a pocket.  The back is beautiful as well.

 I am open to any comments or suggestions about 
 this lovely vintage garment.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.  From the flare sleeves I am thinking it could be from the 1920's, maybe as early as late teens.
