The under slip is a silk taffeta in a beautiful shade of violet purple. Sheer purple silk chiffon accents at hem and back of bodice.
Both pieces are an over the head fit, with no fasteners or snap closures - because of this the recommended size to get each piece safely on & off is an extra small to small. All measurements are listed below. This set is in beautiful condition considering its age and delicate materials.The slip has been dry cleaned and held up nicely with no damage. It does have color fade / shifting throughout, and some staining and spots that did not lift with a dry clean. They are not noticeable at all when wearing the patterned dress over it. The chiffon fabric of dress is strong and sturdy, but is a delicate fabric by nature and should be handled gently with care.
I have only steam cleaned the dress, as I do not think it would fare well with a dry clean and submerging in water might damage the delicate silk. It is not dirty and I find no stains to note. Underarms are in excellent condition, as are the shoulders.
There are a few stitches out at hem. As the silk chiffon has a little more give than the taffeta slip, the dress can accommodate up to a size 6 (It fit me at height of 5'7' and measurements 34-28-38). The slip fabric has no give at all and best fits an extra small size.S I Z E : SLIP tag size - none fits like - womens modern US extra small bust - 32 to a small cup 33 max bodice length - about 15" waist - 25"/26" hip - up to snug 37" max length - about 56" DRESS tag size - none fits like - womens modern US extra small to small bust - 34 max waist - measures 14" flat bodice length - 16" hip - measures 19.5" flat sleeve - about 4" arm opening - 8" measured flat length - about 56.
