Rare 1950s New Look Striped Taffeta House Coat Dress
This product is currently sold out.
The construction on this particular house coat is breathtaking - it is very 1950s Christian Dior. The back skirt has been sewn so that the stripe meets at the dead center--creating a wonderful "V" diagonal pattern that reaches the floor. Although this is a difficult technique to achieve, this house coat executes the design perfectly. The bodice is cut so that the lines are vertical, and the collar features a cut-out in the back so that it lays flat. All in all, a truly amazing work of art from the 1950s. Today you could wear this as a coat over a simple black dress or even wear as is with heels. Or, if you're just that classy - wear it as the women did in the 50s while you style your hair in curls.
