1960s Unlabeled Beautifully Printed Indian Cotton Caftan Dress

I love these 1960s cotton caftans. They are great for the beach and traveling and are easy to just throw on and go. They are so easy to wear and versatile and the combination of print and fabric is hard to beat with modern day counterparts. This one has a gorgeous print that is a mix of a deep red, navy and a natural cotton color, and it looks like it was hand blocked onto the cotton. The cut is classic for this time period. It is bias cut so that you can just slip it over the head. The cut through the body is very generous and it is not meant to be fitted. It is meant to sit loose and easy on the body,. The hem flares out quite dramatically and it is very wide by the time it reaches the hem. The neckline is notched with a hook and eye at the top. The sleeves are cut an an angle with the ends ending in points that run down your wrists. They are also cut very full and wide. A great original piece from this time period. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips on to wear. The neckline is notched with a hook and eye at the top. The bias cut will allow it to fit a variety of sizes.
