SALE—was $68

I don't care what anyone says, I think that dressing in something so beautiful at home is a great way to treat yourself! This house (or hostess) dress was made by Maxan in the 1950s, and the fabric is light, silky rayon taffeta, unlined. The dress zips up the front with a metal zipper, and there are little pearly white buttons along the zipper as decoration. There is a keyhole from the top of the zipper to the button at the neckline, which you can fasten or not to suit. The little stand-up collar, short sleeve cuffs and big pockets are all quilted. The skirt flares smoothly in back and has wide box pleats in front.

Condition: Very, very good. There are a few minor marks inside the collar, as shown in the last photo. Also, there are belt loops and no belt.

Size: Medium, about a US size 10 by my estimate

Back of neck to waist-16.75"
Waist to hem-41"

Please note: I measure the dimension of the item itself, and you will need to consider what size you would want the item to be to fit well on you.
