Here is a pretty pale blue classic twinset - cami-top and cardigan - to suit any vintage outfit, by the international boutique, Europa. The exact age is unknown but I would say this is from the 1960s or possibly early 70s.
It's unworn - still has a little bag with spare button attached - and in excellent condition. It's knitted in a rough-textured stitch, although the fabric is soft to the touch, in a mixture of cotton, ramie and spandex, the latter giving it stretch. (And I bet you didn't know that ramie is what the ancient Egyptians used to wrap their mummies in, did you?)
The camisole has a shallow vee neck and narrow straps; the cardigan has a vee neck and fastens with six buttons. Both hems and the cardigan cuffs are finished with one-inch of ribbing.
Labelled as medium size, approximate measurements (taken flat, no stretching) are bust 36 ins/91.5 cms, underarm seam 18½ ins/47.5 cms, length 22 ins/56 cms.
