1960s Vintage Block Printed Paisley Ethnic Kaftan • New Generation Boutique
Flippin' amazing and rare hand block printed dress from the 60s London Boutique New Generation, with it's wonderfully psychedelic label. This dress is made from a thick cotton or line like a barkcloth and is unique. The printing has splodges and all hand done by the artist. I'm not sure if they are African or Indian elephants but the paisley design is Asian I suspect, probably Indian or Malaysian.

Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
