1960s Silver Thread Embroidered Pink Adonis Caftan

What a gorgeous vintage caftan and in a hard to find bright pink that has a wonderful heavy silver metallic thread design embroidered onto it. The caftan is cut long and is of mid-weight light that really allows it to hold that columnar shape. I love the dramatic and extensive panels of embroidery work that runs all the way down the front and across the upper back. Additionally all the edges near the seams have silver derailing. It is also picked up heavily around the cuffs of the sleeves and the design trails down each side and around the bottom. As it nears the hem the caftan widens out slightly for a nice fullness. I love the exotic feel and the dramatic statement the combination of the pink and silver. The buttons and loops are covered in a metal thread so add a little extra bit of gleam down the front. Very well made and the thread is very thick and of high quality. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a hand set deep silver silk including the sleeves. It closes at the front with metal thread buttons and loops. There is a little bit of wear to the very top button. It completely unbuttons at the front. Hand made
