Thea Porter Embroidered Metallic Caftan, Circa 1967

About

Directly inspired from the Northern Africa traditional “djellaba”, this late 60's - early 70’s Thea Porter caftan is perfect for vacation or summer parties. Made from lightweight nude gazar (feels like silk gauze), this piece is intricately embroidered with gold-beige threads, creating a magnificent flowers motif. Embellished with bronze metallic trims, the caftan skims over your figure featuring side slits for a more loose, flowing fit. Plunging neckline can be adjusted using the silver buttons. Dramatic batwing sleeves (see picture 11). Labelled English size 12 (US 8), this piece runs small to size. Boho chic, versatile, just layer this rare Thea Porter piece over your favorite bikini or a slip dress when out for dinner. Fits approx. : US 2-6 (small US 6) / FR 36-38 (small FR 38) This item has been professionally cleaned, pressed & carefully inspected by a couture-trained seamstress before being sold.
