    This dress has only one tag that proclaims that it's made of "Mallinson's satin stripe". No other tags, buttons, or zipper. It just slips on over the head. It had a dropped waist. Do you think its's from the twenties? Anyone heard of Mallinson's fabric? Thank you!!

    Definitely late 20s, but not ever heard of that material

    That is a super dress. I have ads for Mallinson's silks and dressmaker fabrics in some of my old magazines from the 'Teens and 1920s. First time I have seen their label sewn into a garment.
