This vintage pattern from Butterick features a yoked nightgown in two lengths, babydoll pajamas, and long pajamas for girls. This design was originally issued in 1957, but this copy is a later reissue, from the 1960s (same number and art, but different logo placement on the envelope). Some patterns remained part of the catalog for years, and pajama patterns (since they aren't as subject to fashion trends) are often in that category.

This pattern would be a good choice to help teach an older girl to sew - no scary zippers, and lots of leeway in the fit - and it's actually the largest size offered for this pattern:

Breast 32"
Waist 26"
Hip 35"

The pattern is complete and uncut. The envelope is worn, and has tears and splits in three corners (the lower left is mysteriously intact). There's also a small tear on the back, near the flap.
