Vintage Hippie 70s Indian Cotton Gauze Dress Printed Peacock Unused NOS Small
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This dress comes from 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 peacock representations on the bodice and yolk as well as around the bottom of the dress. The print is in three different tones of blue with metallic gold accents on a white background. 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 sets of ties at the open neckline - otherwise, it simply fits over the head, so please note that you have to be smaller than the measurements supplied for it to fit properly. The last photo shown here gives you an idea of the variety of dresses that I have for sale.
Label: S 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 (because it has to go over your head, and should be loose fitting):
Shoulders: 13 1/2” from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 23” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 18”
Bust: 36” around
Waist: 44" around, meant to fall loosely in pleats
Length: 43“, measured lying flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition. Because it had been stored in plastic for 45 years, I did launder it to freshen it up. It is ready for use.
Rare to find these dresses unused like this - beautiful colours and print, sure to be noticed!
