FABRIC/COLORS: The fabric is shantung - lightweight and silky to the touch with subtle slubbing. Based on a fiber burn test, I believe it is rayon. Color is light carnation pink. The lining is matching pink lightweight acetate type fabric.

TAGS: Henry - Lee

CLOSURES: A long metal zipper down the back.

CONDITION: It looks like a former owner took the dress in at the bust by angling the sideseams from the waist to underarms - if it was returned to original fit, you could add 1 to 1.5" back to the bust measurement. At some point, the belt was also altered, adding a piece of matching fabric to lengthen it at the buckle - see closeup. No stains, holes, tears or other issues noted.
