    Bias cut, I believe it's rayon, sexy and flowy! Am I crazy for thinking it could be 40s? No fastener - just pull over, and ties in the back. Great little ruffles at neckline. No tags. The print, the drape, and the details seem soooo 40s to me. Thoughts? (Sorry for all the pics...)

    I associate rayon with 40's but the print is giving me a 50's vibe....

    Sorry I guess I am no help!

    That bias cut is very similar to the nightgown cut of the 40s with no closures and a tie to fit it in. The print is 40s/50s, and the color is more 40s.So in the not really a big help category, I think early - mid 40s will do the trick.

    I think late 40s, and I think if I was skinny, it would be mine!

    The basic measurements are: bust 34", waist 27", hips 36". Top of shoulder to hem 57".

    I am tempted to keep it, but I have nowhere to wear it! It's pretty :D
