    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!

      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!
