Fiber/Care: no tags, Very soft and drape-y natural fiber that feels like cotton and silk, but burn test is inconclusive. Satin feels like silk. Could be high-quality rayon. Dry-cleaning recommended.
Condition: no flaws to note
*This dress was washed by Elizabeth's grandson, and then we had it professionally dry-cleaned. It survived beautifully (another reason I'm pretty sure it's not rayon).*
