1960s Hand Applied Cord & Mirror Detailed Orange Cotton Caftan Dress

In the sixties and into the seventies, caftan fever was at an all time high and some of the best example are from this time period. This fabulous hand dyed bright orange cotton example combines a gorgeous and easy to wear cut with a fabulous mix of hand applied detailing. It is perfect to be worn day or evening. The sleeves are cut in a straight wide line and end a slight flare. The neckline is notched at the front and it is cut loose and easy through the body, It then falls in a gradually widening line as the hem reaches the floor. It is made of a beautiful cotton that has been hand dyed to the orange that you see. The label identifies it as having been made in Pakistan and it is finished in a gorgeous combination of little mirrored discs that are held in place by a hand done application of a natural cording. This creates a substantial pattern at the front of the caftan and around the back of the neck and also finished each cuff. A really fabulous and wearable caftan. Excellent condition with a note below.
