vintage turquoise Ayesha Davar 1970s Indian cotton blockprinted dress with gold accents - ON HOLD
From collectible designer Ayesha Davar, a very pretty 1970s bright turquoise (almost sky blue) Indian cotton dress, with metallic gold block print and piping to the tiered skirt.
Smocked waistline, full sleeves with single button cuffs. Button front neckline and interesting triangular inserts to yoke.
Measures: Label reads size 36 (approx uk8) but I think it would fit a little bigger too,
Bust is 44" max including cup room (tent like below shoulders)
Waist goes from minimum 24" to max 34" on the elasticated smocking
Hips are unfitted, up to 50" max
Total length s-h approx 46"
Underarm to cuff 18.5"
- One odd/discoloured button to cuff. I wonder if they were all originally self fabric covered, but these are the ones it came with and aren't too bad a match. Might be nicer with ball buttons though?
-A couple of areas of rub to the gold block printing, one to RH bust side and one to centre of back.
Clean and ready to wear!
