1940s Peer Emerald Satin Brocade Hostess Gown
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.
