Meet Kashmir, she is a gorgeous and truly rare 1970s cotton blend kaftan dream dress, she is semi sheer. Kashmir is a bohemian dream, original 1970s kaftans are unbeatable, and are the most gorgeous kaftans you can find. This beauty has a dark green base colourway with an epic paisley style print. She has floaty beautifully shaped sleeves and a mandarin style collar with buttons down her chest. These kaftans look beautiful when worn, and are iconic to the era, representing that free spirited female energy from the 1970s perfectly.
P.S. Sorry, Normas arms sadly broken (they are now repaired) and that's why there are no arms on this photo, I promise Kashmirs sleeves are a dream!
This girl is quite flexible in size due to her cut, she would work on UK sizes 10/12/14/16 possibly 18.
Bust - up to 46"
Waist - FREE
Length - 56"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Kashmir has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
