1960s Deep Green Embroidered Wrapped Cotton Caftan Dress

This is a fantastic sixties kimono-esque wrapped caftan that is quite wonderful. The green used is a deep deep olive and that combined with the pop of orange used on the applique and embroidery work that detail the front, neck and sleeves makes for a fabulous combination. The sleeves are wide and very full and the body of the caftan is cut loose and easy. This one wraps and button into place at the front - which is a little more unusual then a standard, over-the-head version. The fabric is a light cotton so even though there are yards and yards of it it does not feel heavy when on but loose and easy to wear. This can easily go form the beach to day wear to evening. It's brilliant! Excellent condition

Unlined and wraps and buttons to close with a series of buttons hidden inside (pictured) and on the exterior. The embroidery and cotton applique work appear to be done by hand. The cotton is light weight and there are some very minor variations and discoloration in the shade of green here and there - I feel this is a combination of natural patina and the fabric choice used (its hand dyed). It just makes it feel more authentically vintage and fabulous in my opinion. The loose cut can fit a variety of sizes
