Vintage 1970s Blue Barbados souvenir Island vibe Dashiki style dress with Bell Flare Sleeves | Tribal Boho Hippie Kaftan dress | NOS| Size S
Still has the original tags on, New Old Stock (NOS).
This 1970s pullover caftan/kaftan dress was brought back from Barbados by my groovy mom in the 70s and never worn. It is a dark royal blue flared bell butterfly half sleeve cotton dress that like a very groovy semi fitted Kaftan, reflecting the Island's history. Cool, and comfy - Island tribal vibes based on a Dashiki style. It is a very lightweight cotton, semi sheer, that features a rich blue background with gold, black and burgundy tribal design. The sleeves are amazing. I love the fact that it is slightly tailored for a bit of sophistication. Perfect for a hot patio day, by the pool, on the beach etc. This is the real deal for you Dashiki collectors. It was not worn, still has the original tags on.
