This gorgeous hostess outfit dates back to the 1960s, and it is just what the stylish hostess would have worn when throwing a killer cocktail party! Today it is equally relevant and chic to those how loose the quintessential bohemian vintage look given the gold brocade shirt and belt. The skirt is almost to the floor with a slight A line. The bodice is cut from crepe and skins the body with a lovely high fold m and sleeves that zip at each cuff cinch in at the cuffs to give a balloon feel.  But the belt is what adds to the uniqueness and vintage feel of the dress with its oversized baroque wood buckle that ties with a bucks to the desired waist size at the back allowing the dress to be worn by sizes 8 and 10. It is of course the skirt that is the star on this one - a baroque pattern is created by swirls of gold and silver and gold lurex thread

It sparkles and gleams in candlelight and is really quite wonderful. Excellent condition

Size 8 - 10 

Great vintage condition with a discreet repair to the left arm by the cuff.

Size Guide

We take pride in providing accurate measurements with an approximation of modern UK with an International equivalent size chart below sizing to help you when choosing  your purchase and  will fit properly  as often vintage sizes differ significantly from modern sizes. 

It is also very helpful if you are aware of your own particular dimensions. If you're not sure, you may easily approximate them by measuring an item of clothes from your own wardrobe that fits well and is laid flat.

Measure the waist flat across  and for the bust from pit to pit in inches and then double it  Length is measured from middle of the shoulder to the end of the garment.
