1960s Dollyrockers Bright Floral Printed Red Cotton Caftan Dress

Dollyrockers was one of the British labels that were active in London during the sixties and into the seventies and are know as being a part of the British Boutique Movement. The label was launched around 1963 and stayed in business until about 1975. Their peasant dresses and pieces that had a bit of a caftan feel were the most popular. They were known for re-cutting and re-sewing found vintage dresses and for using vintage fabrics for their designs. 

This fabulous red cotton dress has a bright and happy floral print in a vivid yellow and green. The print is done to mimic embroidery and it is not until you are close to the fabric that you realize it is not actually embroidered. It is just adorable and one of those dresses that will make you feel happy when you wear it. The front neckline is squared off and it is seamed just under the bust. The sleeves are cuffed and a touch fuller above the cuffs. It is gathers in through the high waist and from there the skirt falls in a gradually widening line. I love how the hem of the skirt has a stronger print border that matches the cuffs and the detailing on the bodice. It is made of a soft cotton and is fabulous. Excellent condition with a small note below

Partially lined through the upper shoulders and the rest is unlined. It closes with a back metal zipper. Hidden pockets along each hip. 100% cotton. Tagged a Med. The red in person is slightly softer then how it photoed. There are a couple of variations in the color on the bodice but in person the effect is less then how it photoed.
