1960s Unlabeled Red Thai Print Cotton Caftan Dress w Frog Knot Detail

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 red print one combines a gorgeous and easy to wear cut with a fabulous mix of prints. It is perfect to be worn day or evening. I love everything about the lines of this piece. The sleeves are cut extra wide and end on a pointed curve.The neckline is slit down the front and has bright red frog knots to close and add an unexpected pop. Running down the front is a fantastic contrasting print. This same print that adorns the front also runs down the back and then each sleeve is finished with that same print. It is cut loose and easy through the body and then falls in a gradually widening curve as the hem reaches the floor. Side slits run up each side. It is made of a beautiful cotton that is custom screened in that distinctive prints. A really fabulous and wearable caftan. Excellent condition with one note below
