This slip is so sweet! Where do I begin? Bearing the 'Enkalon' label, this adorable light pink full slip petticoat is unworn - in fact, it still has its original 'Huber' label attached to the bust. Like Perlon, Enkalon is supremely soft and silky (and rather transparent!) - so much more than ordinary nylon. The bust and hem are made of layers of alternate white lace and pleats - so incredibly pretty. The spaghetti straps are non-adjustable, as is often the case with European slips. This dates from the late 1950's to early 1960's, but I will err on the side of caution and call it 1960's. A lovely early 1960's full petticoat slip.
