Iconic 1950s taffeta hostess gown. Ankle length with half sleeves. Black taffeta with a monochromatic floral print and light pink satin trim/collar. This exceptional dress is everything you think of when picturing a mid-century housewife during a night of hosting. Some key notes about this dress - The fabric has no give/stretch. It is very form-fitting at the top with a high pinched waist and a dramatic flare at the base. The maker's tag reads, "Designs by Robert". There are no other tags on this item. There is one hidden pocket on the right side of the dress. There are two belt loops at the back of the dress for the matching sash.

Please make sure to go through the measurements for this gown. As mentioned, it does not have any give. It is made for a tall slender person. I would guess a size 2-4 and a height of at least 5' 6". I'm 5' 8" and it reaches my ankles without heels.

Measurements:
Bust: 34"
Waist: 30"
Hip: 36"
Flare: 90"
Length: 61"
Waist to Hem: 44"
Sleeve Length (from top of shoulder to cuff): 16"

Sash Thickness: 4.5"

Condition: Very good vintage condition with no stains, rips, or tears. There are a few issues with this item - The hook and eye closure on the interior waist of the dress are incomplete with the eye missing (it can easily be replaced), there is a small amount of piling to the pink satin (less than expected and only noticeable upon close inspection), and the pink satin is a mildly discolored on the sleeve cuffs from age. There are no visible stains on the satin sleeve cuffs, but you can see that the hue of pink is a bitter darker. Please see provided photos for full details.
