Vintage 1960s Hostess Gown Novelty Print Pretzel Pattern Lounging Robe Size M L


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a 1960s era hostess gown/lounging robe made in Montreal under the “Carolyn Loungewear” brand name.  The piece is printed with pretzels in colours of magenta, yellow, orange and blue against a bright green background.  The piece does up the front with a nylon zipper - if you do it up to the top, you have a high, standing collar, or you can leave it partially unzipped for a more relaxed look (see photos).  Otherwise, the gown is made in a loose, comfortable style, with raglan styled long sleeves and featuring draping at the skirt.  The fabric is synthetic, looks like a nylon or polyester base.   It has two slit pockets.

Sizing: No size is indicated but this should fit a medium to large size, depending on preference for looseness of fit - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the piece into consideration:

Sleeves:  29” from the mid-neck to the cuff

Bust:  42” around, meant to be loose

Waist:  50” around

Overall length:  54”, measured flat

Condition:  It is in very good condition with the exception of a tiny hole and scuff next to the back centre seam, about 18” up from the hemline (see last close-up photo), very minor.  Otherwise, the gown is clean and free or other defects, including staining, odour or wear and tear. 

This is crazy loungewear - wonderful novelty print featuring pretzels in bright colours that are sure to be noticed!
