We show it over an additional crinoline slip, not included. Metal Relees-It brand zip with hook&eye at top and waist. Union made in the U.S.A.

Labels: only a 1955-'63 ILGWU label and a style/size tag remain

Fiber/Care: unmarked, synthetic (most likely nylon and/or poly) organza over satin over net, washable 

Condition: underarm discoloration (worse on right than left) and some "striping" at the side center back may lift with targeted treatment, although it's inconspicuous as is (the studio lights make it more pronounced). see photos. one very small spot on back of skirt is lost in folds.

For reference, the dress fits Delphine the Mannequin (and is not clipped to her in the photos), although there's a bit of wiggle room, and a somewhat larger bust would fill it out better than she does. She measures bust: 32, rib: 27, w: 24
