1940s Black Striped Hostess Dress Coat


Lovely vintage 1940s black silk taffeta hostess dress coat with woven multi-coloured stripes. This is a great piece and fairly flexible in size as it has a wrap over and tie waist so no set measurement or size but would work best on a UK 10-14 or US 6-10. Could be worn on it’s own as a dress or over something else and is in very good vintage condition with just a couple of unnoticeable marks.
