I finally can say that I own an actual vintage 1920s assuit shawl, or at least a piece of one! I recently acquired half a shawl remnant in a gorgeous chocolate brown color with gold metal tribal patterns. If you don't know what an assuit shawl is you can read more HERE. While it wasn't a whole shawl, it was large enough to turn into a sheer blouse for layering, which is shown on the right. I followed instructions similar to a DIY post I did for a Shawl Caftan, HERE. Enjoy!
