1940s Peer Emerald Satin Brocade Hostess Gown

$ 128.00

Popular from the 1930s until the 1970s, the hostess gown was the frock of choice for ladies who wanted to remain respectable while entertaining guests, but also comfortable in a casual home setting.

Often described as a cross between a bathrobe and an evening dress, hostess gowns often were brightly colored with a forgiving waistline. 

This lovely jewel-toned ensemble is certain to have your friends and guests green with envy! Fashioned in a vibrant emerald satin brocade, this elegant, yet comfortable gown features 3/4 sleeves, a V-neckline, a tied scarf draped collar and hidden side pockets. Skirt has 2 inverted pleats to give it fullness while keeping a sleek profile.

Gown fastens in the front with 2 buttons and a long 21" metal zipper. Dress comes with original belt with rhinestone buckle.
