1960s Brilliant Multi Color Thai Silk Caftan Dress

What a gorgeous, dramatic, silk print dress in a brilliant combination of colors on fine Thai silk. The fabric would have been screened with the print and specifically placed on the fabric so that everything lined up perfectly upon the the final assembly. A print of the wide cut maxi skirt is a smaller floral explosion of color with wide printed bands of contrasting border. This border defines the waist and also the wide floating sleeves. The design used on the top portion offers sharp contrast with a larger version of the floral design. I love the caftan feel cut and how you can wear it loose and easy or use the attached waist ties to cinch it for more shape. It is a true beauty, really fantastic and an easy to wear statement piece. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

Unlined and closes to the waist with a hidden set painted metal zipper. A fabric covered button sits at the back neck and there is an open slit between the back of the neck and the waist. The ties are attached. The interior seams are finished in ribbon piping and there is a slit up one side of the skirt. Hand made in Thailand
