Heavenly Embroidered Vintage 1960s 70s Cheesecloth Summer Maxi Dress

An absolute delightful romantic original 'hippy' vintage flared dress in soft cream, embroidered yoke panel and beautiful Bishop sleeves.

Lovely romantic silhouette created by the flared skirt and bishop sleeves. The pretty definition and fulness to the long maxi skirt by the gathered central panels to both front and back at the empire waistline. Beautiful drape and flare from the gathers and stunning vivid tangy colours of the embroidered front panel. Some definition given by the nehru styled collar and with full length zipper to the back of the dress.
There is quite some volume to the cheesecloth fabric, although it remains a perfect cloth for summer.
The bishop sleeves are elegant and narrow to the top with huge 'lantern' hemmed cuffs with hook and eye fastening.
Very well made, although bearing no labels this is a rare vintage maxi from this period and very evocative of hippy history flower power and romance
