1940s Sequined Front Silk Crepe Top

An amazing early 1940s silk moss crepe top in basic black that has the most amazing sequin detailing all down the front! Glossy rows of sequins run down the front of the top from shoulder to hem. The peplum at the waist adds a nice touch and you could belt the waist to emphasize it more. I love the just past the elbow sleeves and the little bow at the neck! All hand applied sequins. Stunning and in excellent condition!
