Item details

Vintage from the 1970s

Stunning handmade maxi dress from the Seventies in beautiful fabrics. I think these are probably Indian sari fabrics, which someone has used to create a romantic, bohemian dress (the construction feels very Western home made, but the aesthetic is obviously leaning towards Thea Porter-style Middle Eastern bohemian chic!). I love the big flared sleeves and the flowing skirt, and the use of the stunning striped fabric is very well done.

Measurements:

Bust 35" - Waist 27" - Hips 38" - Length 58"

Fabric

Unknown content as it is a homemade piece but they feel like they may well be silk

Condition:

Very good condition. There are glitches (like dents) to the fabrics all over, which I assume are original to their manufacture. There are also some raised fibres - mainly on the bodice and down the zip placket. A mend to the top of the bodice where the facing is stitched inside - clearly this has 'pulled' some fibres a bit and it has been mended - only visible with scrutiny. This is a home made piece so has less refined construction than a mass-produced item. Sold as vintage.
