1960s Lucie Ann Silky Rayon Bright Orange Scarf Print Caftan Hostess Dress
The Lucie Ann label was one that produced mainly lingerie but in the 1960s and 1970s that diversified ad produced a small line of more hostess style clothing pieces. You don' see these as often but when you do they are usually pretty great. They have this almost campy, Hollywood starlet--entertains-at-home feel to them and this great little caftan dress is a perfect example of just that. It is a bit of a rarity and quite fabulous and just plain fun. I was pretty excited to find it. It is made out of a silky rayon twill that is the same weight that a scarf from this time period would have been made out of. The print is gorgeous with a brilliant orange for the sleeves and most of the skirt and then a blue based print contrasting on the bodice and used all the way around the bottom of the skirt. The sleeves are full with a loose set elastic at each cuff. The bodice is more fitted and and the waist is seamed. Under that the skirt falls to the floor in a widening curve. It is very light weight and easy to wear. Excellent condition.
Unlined and closes at the back with a painted metal zipper. Elastic in each cuff that is set loose and wide
