Blue and Yellow Vintage Batik Caftan Lounger

About

Don this vintage batik caftan lounger and transport yourself to a favorite exotic locale ... whether it be the islands or your very own backyard. The batik print incorporates colors of deep blue with a hint of teal and a buttery yellow that darkens to more of a mustard shade. The fabric has the look and appearance of cotton and the neckline and side seams are bordered with a butter yellow scalloped trim stitched with a metallic silver thread that subtly captures the light. Pullover style and seamed for some structure at the sides, this caftan can easily perform double duty as a casual warm weather dress or add a chandelier earring and mules for a fun tropical night out. Good condition and looks rarely worn though there are some overall variations in color which I believe is part of the handmade batik process. The most noticeable darkened spots are at the back left shoulder shown in photograph 10. This darkened discoloration actually shows up more in photographs than in person. SIZING & MEASUREMENTS The caftan is basically a one-size-fits-all with the following measurements provided as a guideline. The mannequin in the photographs is a size 4 and the caftan was a little too large on her shoulders. I would recommend a best fit for medium to large sizes though it might work for smaller sizes with a strong shoulder line. - When flat, the caftan measures 44" across x 53" long - The stitched seams measure 27.5" across providing for a 55" bust, waist and hip measurement - The scalloped trimmed neck opening measures 11" across - The arm opening (hidden in the folds of fabric) from shoulder to underarm measure 11"
