50s Batiste Pajamas Vintage Barbizon Top Pants Lace Pintuck S
These 1950s vintage pajamas are adorable, so feminine and girly with lots of wonderful detailing! The top is styled with a front yoke of vertical pintucking spaced by delicate inset lace. Fabric is gathered into the yoke for soft fullness at the bust. A narrow placket of lace edged horizontal pintucking extends beyond the yoke as a counterpoint. The short sleeves are also trimmed with bands of lace and pintucking. There is ruffled lace around the neck and a piece of narrow satin ribbon to tie in a soft bow at the front. The pants have an inset waistband with soft pleating for ease.

The pajama top closes with six pale yellow pearly plastic buttons into vertical buttonholes down the front, with a small snap at the neck. The pants have a sideseam open placket and fasten with two buttons at the waist.
I have replaced the snap at the neck - there is some dark green discoloration directly under the snap on the left hand side from oxidation of the old brass snap. No other issues noted.
