1970s Elaborately Embroidered Deep Turquoise Blue Silk Caftan Dress

This is an incredible caftan that makes a striking statement with its combination of a deep turquoise blue silk and the extensive hand done embroidery work adorning its surface. The detailing and embellishment that has been added to this caftan is wonderful. The silk fabric has a slight iridescent quality to it and it is slightly more turquoise in feel in person. I love the white thread embroidery that is set onto the silk in a curling pattern from top to bottom. Interspersed into this design are little pops of of turquoise knots and delicate highlights done with a fine gold cording. This combination all adds up to the glamorous and exotic feel that the piece has. Down the front there is a more dense version of the same design that follows the line of the neckline and curves around the neck. The dress is open through the body and then seamed down each side with a space for your arms to slip through at the top. It all adds up to a beautiful piece and you feel very glamorous once this is on. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition

Unlined and slips over the head to wear, It has hidden set snaps down the front neckline. The cut will fit pretty much any size. The dress in person has a slightly more turquoise feel to it. The embroidery work is all done by hand. It looks to have been worn very little if at all.
