Cute or what? If you’re the sort of gal who loves to look unbelievably, irresistibly loveable, then the only other thing you need is to be a 34” bust. 36” at a pinch, because “Small” means there’s only so much room across the shoulders, and the 18” armholes are slightly restrictive. So, 34 to 36” bust person, this is what you get: a truly vintage Miss Elaine – so vintage that the tag is sky blue embroidery script, and surely the paper tag can’t still be that stiff after all those years and all those washes. Except it might not have had too many washes, or too many wearings. The single layer of nylon chiffon that we call the peignoir (negli seems more likely than robe, because there isn’t much of it) has one or two light picks in it but the nightie really is in wonderful condition. Did you notice the lace illusion? The lace is sewn inside chiffon that’s been doubled over, and it’s such a lovely feature it trims all around the hemline of the nightie’s outer layer. And the neckline, where the bow can actually be tied a bit tighter if that’s what you want. A very gentle off-white is the best way to do the colour justice. Not a bright, garish white, in other words. Because the negligée features lace within a double chiffon trim all the way up the front (to the press stud that secures it), around the neckline and around the cuffs of the short sleeves, it does weigh slightly more than nothing . . . but it is, to all intents and purposes, completely float-away-taking-you-with-it weightless. That’s as it should be, or should have been, in those far-off days when men were men and women were girls, or babes, or sugar . . . or sweetie. Can’t do or say it now, of course, except at home where the Thought Police can’t reach us. Yet.
