1960s Unlabeled Printed Velveteen & Elaborate Gold Braid Caftan Dress

This great little caftan from the sixties in unlabeled but still a great find. It is made from a flat pile, printed velveteen. The print is a combination of paisley mixed within an elaborate and exotic feeling design. The fabric is very pliable and not at all heavy in weight so that once on it drapes very well. The flat pile of the velveteen gives it a wonderful and unexpected texture. The body of the caftan is cut very full and open with very wide sleeves that comes out from the sides. The sleeves are cut simply and straight rather then narrowing as they reach the cuff. The neckline is scooped but with a zipper that ends at the bottom of the front detailing so you can open it a bit if you wish. I love the gold metallic cord that is used to detail the front of the neck and each cuff. Both cuffs and the front are also edged in rows of black, red and green sequins that border the gold for a touch of color. The gold cord used adds some structure to the cuffs and neck and really pop against the print. Excellent condition.

Unlined and slips over the head. A painted metal zipper at the front bib. There is very light patina tot he gold cording. This is from normal wear and age and adds to the vintage feel of the piece. The easy cut will allow this to fit most sizes
