1970s Treacy Lowe Peach Print Silk Chiffon Caftan Dress

About

Treacy Lowe based her designs on fabric and she had an incredible eye for choosing beautiful options. She tended to gravitate toward the lightest, finest silk tissues and chiffon available and these are the fabrics that are almost impossible to work with because they are so light and airy. She managed despite that and her results were dresses like this one. It weighs only a few ounces and is incredibly easy to wear and look fantastic in. The dress is cut with a slight nod to the Victorian era with a gathered and ruched neckline and upper bodice. In those areas the fabric has been gathered with tiny cross stitches and thatched, for a pretty and romantic feel. This same cross stitch effect is picked up again on each wide cuff. The dress flows out from the upper shoulder in a cascade of silk that drapes to the ground. You can wear it loose as shown or easily add instant shape by adding a belt or swath of fabric around the waist. The print on the silk is hand screened and the silk itself is the finest Indian silk you could get at that time. Excellent condition. The body of the dress is fully lined in silk gauze hand dyed to match the exterior silk chiffon. The sleeves are left unlined. It slips over the head and closes at the neck with an attached tie and silk covered buttons. This one lost its label when it went to the dry cleaners but I guarantee it to be Treacy Lowe. The caftan cut will allow for a variety of sizes. Sleeves: 24.5" Shoulders: 14.5" Bust: 21" flat across from side seam to side seam Waist at inner lining: 21.5" flat across from side seam to side seam Hips at inner lining: 23" flat across from side seam to side seam Length: 58.5" from neck to hem Modern Sizing Equivalent: SML-LRG This garment has been professionally cleaned, pressed and is odor free. Thoroughly checked over before shipping, it will be ready to wear upon arrival.
