1960s smocked button up shirt for 9-month-old baby

24 AUD

Lovely little button up top in brown and white with lovely brown smocking and the cutest swingy shape. 
Made in Australia by 'Freidelle' of 'Tootal' fabric - does anyone else love the kooky names for fabrics of the 50s and 60s or is it just me? - which is apparently 100% Rayon. Feels similar to a really nice quality thick linen. The shirt buttons up the front, and was probably once part of a set, as it also has some buttons around the waist that would have fastened to shorts or trousers. One of these buttons on the front is missing and there is a small (mended) hole. There is also a tiny pinprick rust stain on the front of the shirt. Still plenty of life left in this well-made piece though!
Era: 1960s
Estimated size: Australian size 0, 9-month-old baby

I hope you'll find something here that will make you smile, and maybe make a bub in your life smile, too!
