A blue, lilac and pinky block print dream, this 1970s Indian cotton gauze maxi by Phool is a true beauty. She comes in a super rare maxi length which is truly unusual for this cut of Indian dress. She has a cotton bodice panel and a tiered skirt with billowing sleeves and elasticated cuffs. She has gold stamped accents throughout. This beauty is a real bohemian treasure.

Please have this beauty dry cleaned when she needs it. She is in goodvintage condition, her colour seems to have faded in colour ever so slightly, especially on her cotton bodice, I imagine it was more vibrant at one point, this is subtle and unnoticable. She has wear to her hem to be expected, including a tiny mend. She has also lost one bead from her neck ties. This has all been reflected in her price.
Please note all Indian Cotton Gauze dresses carry signs of wear due to delicacy of the fabric and the dyes used. No item is ever perfect and will carry charm of its previous life, all main flaws will be noted.
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.
