Vintage 1960s Barbiecore Pink Nightie Dress Pleated Chiffon
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This is a wonderful 1960s Barbiecore pink nightie that could be worn as a dress. This 1960s Barbiecore pink nightie has a deep V neckline and back and a high waist that cinches with drawstrings at the centre front. This remind me of the famous “sidewalk” dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, except that that dress was a halter dress.
Makers Label: Linda Underlovelies. This is the brand of Linda Lingerie, established in Montreal in 1944
Fabric: Chiffon, synthetic, possibly polyester or nylon / poly blend - sheer and somewhat see-through
Sizing: Size S is indicated on the tag, but I’m not sure that this is the size - although I think that this 1960s Barbiecore pink nightie is a medium size, please note the following measurements for fit:
Bust: difficult to measure due to the open back - appears to be about 36”
Waist: 34”, meant to be cinched with the ties
Hips: Full, 36” that expands due to
Length: 36”, measured flat
Condition: This 1960s Barbiecore pink nightie is in very good condition - there is a small stitched repair at the seam, but this is hidden within a pleat, so really not at all an issue. Otherwise, no wear, tear, pulls, stains or odour, looks like it saw little use and was well stored over the years.
