    Hi all,
    I would love to have some help in dating this pink dress. My guess is that it's not so old (80s maybe).
    The dress is quite a strange shade of pink (not sure how I would call it, maybe a kind of salmon pink) and it has no label at all. I looked everywhere but couldn't even find a spot indicating that a label had been cut down. The interior lining feels some synthetic fiber to me, but I have no idea about the exterior fabric. It has an attached crinoline (or petticoat? sorry, the difference between these two words is not so clear for me) and a matching belt. It has a zip in the back and serged seams.

    Thank in advance for any information!

    It may have originally had a matching jacket or bolero.

    Thank you so much for all the information! I think coral pink is definitely a better description than salmon pink. I was attracted by such a bold color.
