Gorgeous vintage 1970s silk scarf caftan, with a fabulous border print, by Billie Kunody - a small boutique designer of the period.

It has dramatic wide and low kimono sleeves, a slit neckline that folds back, and a lonnng seductive slit up the front.

Love the large and well-placed ethnic paisley border and thistle motif print scarf textile it's made from. Beautiful colors (see below where I list them all).

I've paired it here in some of the shots with a wide gold lame belt, because it's what I had on hand (not included, tis one of my props). But I think either a chain belt slung low on the hips, or a brown leather belt would work best, if you want to belt it.

A fabulous piece of designer resort wear, straight from the closet of a wealthy woman in Santa Barbara. Will make an elegant, eye-catching beach coverup, a statement at pool parties (with oversize sunglasses and wide gold cuff bracelet, please), or just luxurious at-home-entertaining loungewear. I also might mention it takes up practically no space at all in your luggage for travel.

Need help figuring out if it will fit you? Just click on the Contact link at the bottom and I'll be happy to help.

The Condition: Excellent. Just noticed it has a small spot on the front left side of the bodice - see last photo. I haven't tried to remove it. It may come out with dry cleaning, but it might not; don't know. Regardless, it's small and not obtrusive on a vintage garment in otherwise flawless condition.

The Shipping: Delivered by a flock of silk paisleys, I mean Priority mail, within the U.S.; International First Class to Canada, and International First Class to Everywhere Else.

Yoohoo, International buyers! Your country may charge you customs fees on your purchase, which you're responsible for paying. Just so you know ahead of time and aren't unpleasantly surprised :)
