What's so wonderful about this vintage 60's, Barbizon chemise lingerie nightgown (besides the Blendaire Batiste cool and silky fabric?) is the detail work around the 8" yoke. Tons of pleated smocking, delicate ribbons of lace, charming scalloped edges, the tiniest ruffle, a peter pan color, and 9" opening, 2 button, 1 snap tab with the sweetest of flower embroidery (3 nodding forget-me-nots). Billowy and loose for the lightest of touches. Not even elastic in the sleeves at the biceps. Nothing scratchy, itchy or rough. Just soft, silky and light. A summer cloud, floating across the sky... Definitely an antique, old fashioned sensibility here. Say early 1900's with a little 1960's mixed in. The truest representation of the color is in the first photo. A light robin's egg blue. Size Medium. Excellent condition.
