I love this Vintage Beaded and Embroidered Kameez Ethnic Dress (actually a top) I believe this is the top to a Shalwar kameez, traditional dress worn by both women and men in South Asia and Central Asia."The kameez is a long shirt or tunic. The side seams (known as the chaak), left open below the waist-line, give the wearer greater freedom of movement. I did not find the bottoms but I found this gem barried and hidden and managed to rescue it. I could not find the maker or designer that is labeled anywhere on the web. But the colors are very 1970s and it is in amazing condition. Now that I am pregnant maybe I should keep this one as it would fit me now and later. Can be worn as a dress or with some leggings or your own shalwar or salwar (traditional pants to this top). But we'll see if any of you out there want it first! Enjoy!

Label: Sajawat Selection
Color: Charcoal with marbled like grey lines all around (see pictures). Beading colors: Green, Blue, Rose, White. Threading Embroidery: Orange, Rust, Brown, White
Condition: Chest piece is in amazing condition. There are no missing beads on the piece, the only thing I noticed, was the marbeling of the material after being handwashed (which I think adds to the piece if it was not like that before) and some threading along the sleeve hem embroidery that has become loose or is not there, it is very minimal and can be fixed and does not affect the look or wear of the dress.
