1930's Peach Dress

From the seller:

Item Details: Vintage 1930's peach pink taffeta nightgown. Short layered puffed sleeves. Pintuck and button detail at front. Closes at back with buttons and hook/eyes. Attached tie at waist.
Unmarked Fabric Content: There is no fabric content label, but this dress feels like it is crafted of rayon or acetate.
Unmarked Size: There is no size label, but this dress appears to fit like a current Women's "XS / S". Please refer to measurements to ensure a proper fit.
APPROXIMATE Measurements: Measurements are provided as a courtesy. All of our measurements are taken on the outside of the garment while it is lying flat. Since everyone measures differently, all of our measurements vary and we offer only approximations. If you are in need of a specific measurement be sure to contact us BEFORE purchasing the item as we do not accept returns based on fit.
Shoulder: 13.5" (seam to seam)
Sleeve: 10" (shoulder seam to cuff)
Chest: 17" (x2) (armpit to armpit)
Waist: 14" (x2) (narrowest point)
Hips: 18" (x2) (measured 6" below waist)
Total Length: 58.5" (measured on back, shoulder seam to hem)

From Me:

Of the many things this is, it's not a nightgown. How would you even wear something with stiff fabric like that to bed? Ouch!
