This product is unavailable

This is one of a lot of old store stock Indian printed cotton dresses, never used, and stored for the last 45 years in their plastic bags. This particular dress is printed in an ornate floral and foliate pattern with scrolling. The print is in crimson red, purple, pink with metallic greenish gold accents on a white background - fabulous! I have this dress in small, medium and large sizes, but in very limited quantities. The fabric was made in India of 100% cotton, woven in a lightweight gauzy construction, great for summer wear. The dress has no closures except for two ties at the open neckline that have gold sequins, black beads and gold threading at their ends. The dress simply fits over the head. The last photo shown here gives you an idea of the variety of dresses that I have for sale.

Label: Cotton CA-02911 Made in India. CA-02911 is the Canadian textile identification number for the Indian Palace located on Place Phillips in Montreal, and which specialized in the import of goods from India.

Size: Size S for small is indicated, but please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account (and keep in mind that I have other sizes, so please inquire):

Shoulders: 15 1/2” from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeves: 25” from the shoulder/sleeve seam

Sleeve inseam: 21”

Bust: 35” around

Waist: 32" around, meant to fall loosely in pleats

Hips: Full

Length: 46“, measured lying flat

Condition: It is in excellent condition as it is unused old store stock - there may be some slight colour misprints, typical of these Indian patterned prints.

This is a rare find and a gorgeous one at that - striking colour and print, beautiful summer dress!
