Picked this up today at the salvation army. I don't really know why. My husband was not thrilled to see another dress that I'm never going to wear. It has no label but I don't think its hand made and its made well with a very heavy fabric. I think its silk but maybe satin. It needs a cleaning and a press, I wont try to do this one myself. Any one know what kind of fabric this likely is? I think its early 1940's. Thanks in advance and happy hunting!

    Think you nailed it, vintagemad. Looks like my mother's wedding gown at that was from 1947. She had a good laugh when I split a seam as I tried it on as a teen! She was 95 lbs when she wore it. DD@Phila

    Hi, just saw this. This looks like silk charmeuse satin to me. Charmeuse silk satin has more fluidity than Duchesse satin. I don't think that Duchesse would have worked with this dress style- you wouldn't get the soft folds. Beautiful!
