1970s Green Print Bandanna Scarf Cotton Caftan Dress

This is a fabulous find. It is an early seventies scarf or bandanna caftan dress made of a light cotton and a beautiful green print. The sleeves are cut wide and full, giving a nod to the kimono sleeve. Both the back and the front have a high scooped neck and it is cut so that the magnificent skirt literally has a full 360 degree sweep. This gives it incredible volume and movement. The cotton used is light and fine so it feels easy to wear despite all that fabric in the skirt. The print and the way it is mixed is magnificent. The solid portion outlining the interior patterns create huge sweeping diamonds over the surface and the angles and way its placed help to create height and offset the volume of the fabric. It's supermodel length and the perfect piece that can easily go from the beach to day wear to night and into the fall with a change of styling. These were usually well worn and loved dearly so to find one in such outstanding condition is a real treat. Excellent condition

Unlined and closes with a back painted metal zipper. The caftan/kimono like cut will fit a variety of sizes as long as there is room in the bust. One smudge of a discoloration on the front - super-size the close up bodice pic to see. Priced accordingly. This may come out with additional cleaning
