I don't know if this is silk, but it doesn't feel like some artificial fabric. Beautiful stitching on the hips. Very simple, yet striking dress. Lining is attached only on the side with the snaps.
I will keep looking but I don't see damage. If there is a pinhole or 2, it is hardly visible.
Check my updates, I'll look at the dress in sunlight more later. Length from (imaginary) waist area around 36. Please get in touch if you have questions. I'll do my best to answer.
