Pixie blouses whether cotton, broderie anglais or crocheted usually have a scoop neckline with any opening at the back. Essentially a summer blouse they belong to the same years as the Openwork Top although many are in fine cotton material.


Most have no shaping but when, like this one, they have a drawstring waist they truly resemble a pixie garment
