Vintage 1960s silky blue patterned blouse.Please

This blouse is made from a man made fabric with a lovely silky feel to it, and has an unusual and attractive embroidered-style print. It dates from the late sixties or possibly early seventies, in the style, cetainly, of the former: the print makes it look a bit like a short kaftan, and the little slits at each side enhance this idea.
Apart from that, it's a standard blouse style, with small pointed collar and two-button cuffs; nothing remarkable the shape except for this long, closed pleat all the way down the back.
I have no idea what this label says - 'Flaser' perhaps? - if anyone knows, please tell us! The size, however, is given as 40, which corresponds to a modern UK size 12 (but please check the measurements below).
It's lovely to wear, so silky against your skin! In generally good condition, it's clear that the colours have faded a little if compared to the areas where they haven't been exposed: but the fading has been even, and therefore is not obvious.
It's gorgeous, it's unusual, it'll make you feel special, and it won't crease - just the thing for warm evenings (which we're clearly not going to get here anytime soon!) Approximate measurements are, underarm seam 19 ins/48 cms, length from back of neck 25 ins/63.5 cms, bust 38 ins/96.5 cms.
