1940's Peach Celanese Full Slip withEmbroidery

This is such a stunning little slip!


In a warm peach colour and with pretty embroidery on the cups and on the hem, this is a great example of the Celanese slips from the 1940's when the fabric was cheaper to use than silk or satin, yet easy to wear. "Celanese" is a combination of "cellulose acetate" and the phrase "ease of care," referring to the easy wear of acetate fabric" (according to Celanese.com!).


The label reads "Rational - made from 'Celanese' - Wash as silk - Acetate fabric". Also labelled "BS 34". 


Condition:  Good, only a small repair to the straps. 


Measurements (taken laid flat):

Bust: 18" 

Waist: 16" 

Hips: 19"
