1970s Silk Chiffon Caftan Low Back Gagliano Dress

This is a beauty. I absolutely fell in love with it. I love the bright and pretty combination of pinks and corals that will flatter almost any skin tone. I love the unique design, on one side you have a long and lean silk chiffon sleeve and on the other the cut is pure caftan with no sleeve underneath just a flowing swath of silk chiffon draping to the floor. The dress underneath is a chic column of silk chiffon on the same pattern so you get a marvelous effect with the layering the the design. The front is a high neck but the back is scooped low and rounded leave a bare expanse of skin. Very sexy. It moves and floats around the wearer. The print is a fabulous angular design bu the background of it has an almost subtle tie dye effect. Very unique and very beautiful. Excellent, appears unworn condition.

The inner dress is lined with a second layer of a coral silk chiffon. The exterior sleeve and top layer of silk chiffon that form the caftan feel are unlined. It closes with side zipper on the inner dress
