I believe this style of blouse was called a jumper back in the day. They were usually knitted with cotton crochet thread, which comes in balls of 250 yards or more. You could probably substitute a lace yarn or something super fine like that, but I think if I made it I'd use the cotton crochet thread, because I like cotton.

This sweater does remind me of something my mother wore when women still wore skirt most of the time. But I can see that it would be equally adorable with a nice pair of slacks. For vintage inspired dressing, I think I would pair it with a knotted scarf or look for a set of vintage Coro scatter pins. Its simple enough to dress up or down and would look great with a pair of Capri pants for summer.
