    There are no tags attached, fabric feels crisp, but not as crisp as taffeta nylon. It is more flowy than taffeta nylon. Thanks!

    It "feels" 1940's to me, rayon.

    I get the sense that this is an under slip that came with a matching dress (probably lace, etc), and was not meant to be worn alone. Looks to be later 1940s to 1950s but hard to say for sure. My guess is a it is an acetate or acetate rayon blend.
  5. My vote is '40s acetate taffeta, as Barbara said came with a matching overdress, probably either a sheer printed nylon or a lace.

    Does it have a side opening? Is it a metal zipper or hooks and eyes or press studs? I suspect it's been shortened a bit too.

    My Vote is also 40's, and possibly home sewn, or a cheaper model judging by the stitching quality on the neckline. Its acetate taffeta for sure in my opinion.

    I agree with Nicole. My first thought was acetate taffeta, too.

    I love this slip!! :)
    I have a few slips from the 1950s and they all have rather pointed bullet/conical style bust, this one doesn't so I also think it's from the 1940s.

    Thanks ladies! Let me check the hardware, I don't think there is any but let me double check.
  10. There has to be an opening or it couldn't be this shaped - unless the shape is from clipping.
