1970s Embroidered Gold & Black Caftan

A gorgeous vintage caftan whose base is a black cotton mix fabric that has a gold and silver-white thread design embroidered onto it. The caftan is cut supermodel long and is light but with enough weight to hold the shape. I love the dramatic and wide panel of embroidery work that runs all the way down the front and across the upper back. It is picked up heavily around the cuffs of the sleeves and the design trails down each side and around the bottom. As it nears the hem it widens and is quite full. It gives it a romantic, exotic feeling and really makes a dramatic statement. I love the buttons and loops - they are a metal thread so add a nice bit of gleam down the front. Excellent condition

Fully lined in a black silky rayon including the sleeves and closes at the front with metal thread buttons and loops. It completely unbuttons at the front.
