1970s Beautiful Tie Dye Silk Chiffon Caftan Dress

I strongly feel that this is a designer piece and I have seen the dotted part of this fabric somewhere in the past. I suspect that the girl who snatches it up will receive and email from me one day in the future letting her know I have identified it. It is certainly well made and made of a high quality silk as well. The almost weightless silk used has been tie dyed with a bold and bright palette. It floats over the body with yards and yards of fabric used through the body. This floats over a more substantial inner cotton dress. It gathers softly all around the piped neckline. The sleeves also have a great deal of fabric in them and pouf above there cuffs. It has a matching silk belt that is reversible with the tie dye pattern on one side and the dotted design on the other so you can change the look depending on which side you show or wear it loose and easy and unbelted. I just love the bright patterns against the blue. It reminds me of tropical sunsets. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a coral cotton through the body with the sleeves left unlined. It closes with aback painted metal zipper. Each sleeve has two silk covered decorative fabric buttons and hidden snaps to close the cuff underneath. The fabric tie belt is original to the dress and in excellent condition. Hand finishes inside.
