•Fabric(s): Carlye called this fabric "rayon butcher linen," I don't think it has actual linen content in it, but it looks like linen and resists creasing :), satin

•Lined: no -- note: most photos are presented "back lit" by natural window light, so you get an idea of how sheer or opaque each fabric is

About a modern size XS, maybe smallest end of S; please allow room for fit and ease as desired

Waist about 24"/taut 25" unbelted
Hips full

Very good vintage condition. 60+ years old.

Noted: see photos -- I found a few pinkish marks in an underarm and small ink? mark on top of a shoulder. The belt shows minor wear to its satin. Imperfections are not noticed when worn -- the overall impression is fresh and bright, as shown.
