Hello everyone! I am a new member, and have spent the better part of the last two days devouring all the useful and beautiful content on this site - thank you for sharing your expertise so generously! I recently bought a dress with pointy collars that looked very 1940s to my untrained eye, but the condition and the make of it tell me it may be younger - a late take on 40s to 50s. The label says Pariser Chic Wien, and I wasn't able to find anything about it online, aside from an old eBay listing of a skirt with a metal zipper. There is no care label, only the size 38. The dress is fully lined in a viscose-type slip, has very nice violet embroidery that looks like it was done by a machine. It has a long back zipper down the back, which is plastic and made by YKK, but it is the only part of the dress done with a topstitch (also slightly misaligned at the waist). Regarding the stitches, the hemline is done with something that looks like sloppy basting, which tells me it might have been shortened. The sleeve edges are done with a more careful invisible stitch. The underdress looks like it was done with pinking shears, but also like there is a zigzaggy seam on top of it. It is obvious that the dress is from Austria, and as I am based in Serbia, it makes sense for it to have ended up here. I really hope you will be able to tell me what this looks like to you, is it a more recent item or did I guess correctly, what does the material look like to you, and help me solve this mystery! Thank you so much! I tried to post the photos several times but there was an error, so I put them in the next comment!
