This is a really superb example of early 1940s trousseau nightwear in a wonderful soft peach satin fabric. This dress has elasticated sleeves and a smocked elasticated waistline. The ruffle neckline and dainty puff sleeves make this such a charming example especially as it falls to around ankle length and could even be worn as a outerwear. The condition is absolutely superb for something of this age. It has seen very little wear in its lifetime and there are no faults of any note. The elastic retains most of its elasticity. There are no fastenings - the dress simply slips on over the head. The label reads "Celanese" which was a utility fabric for rationed clothing during the war effort. It has the CC41 label which was used from 1941 through to the early 1950s. It would fit a range of sizes but best suited for up to UK 10-12, US 6-8. Our model is a UK 8-10.
