1970'S Knit Skirt and Top

(Click photos to enlarge)

I'm not sure how this knit set was intended to be worn. It is too sheer (and scratchy) to wear alone, yet looks strange with a long sleeved shirt and slip beneath. Maybe a similarly coloured full slip would work in warmer weather, but the texture of the fabric on my skin would be maddening. I always liked black and blue together, so that's the direction I went.
The top may have accomplished the impossible in making me appear flat-chested. That's a first for me. Do you like the afghan? My mother made it in the 60's.
