Estimated fit: XL UK size 22 24 26 - bust up to 54" / 137cm
Stunning 1960s vintage brocade wedding kaftan purchased by the original owner in Morocco in 1965, featuring a swirling paisley design in silver metallic thread on a black background. The kaftan is an A-line pull-on style fastening down the front with tiny exquisite blue and gold fabric buttons, and a blue and gold braid trim around the neckline, cuffs and down the front. Long wide sleeves and two deep side splits for ease of movement. Fully lined.
Some of the buttons are missing (see photos) and the button loops have been stitched together instead. This is scarcely noticeable when worn. The kaftan is otherwise in wonderful condition for its age and has been carefully stored.

Waist 54" / 137cm

All our clothing is sold according to the actual measurements of the clothes, and our sizings are estimates of modern UK sizes and for your convenience only. Vintage size labels can be very misleading - a vintage dress from the 1960s labelled a UK size 18 is likely to have a bust measurement of only 38-40". To avoid disappointment we advise you to check our measurements against those of a similar garment which fits you well, before you make a purchase.
We will refund excess postal costs via Etsy for multiple purchases by non-UK customers after dispatch. Please contact me for more information.
