1970s Hippie Chic Embroidered Caftan

A gorgeous late 1970s caftan done in a feather light, textured silk-cotton mix, almost chiffon-like fabric, that has gold metallic designs embroidered onto it. The caftan is cut supermodel long and is almost weightless - really floaty and light in feel. I love the dramatic and wide panel of embroidery work on the front and across the upper back. Everywhere else are little bits of the design. The back is very full and trails behind as it is very long at the back. It gives it a romantic, exotic feeling and really makes a dramatic statement. Each sleeve is left unlined and the are cut deep and long so that they billow and drape wonderfully. Excellent condition

Shoulders: no defined seam

Bust: open
Waist: open
Hips: open
Total: 58" from mid back of the neck to bottom hem at the front. The back extends another 16" past that so is 74" long.

Unlined and semi sheer. I slips over the head to wear and the arms are cut long so the sides are pretty much open if you extend your arms.Embroidery work appears to be all hand done.
