mid/late 1970s Mayur Indian arts and crafts vintage block print cotton dress
Very pretty (stopped myself trying on!) Mayur block printed fine Indian cotton dress. It has a lovely arts and crafts style rose print, and the slightly dropped waist and tabard or apron panel to front of skirt does have an early 20c look to it.
Lovely horseshoe shaped neckline, fastens with ties finished with tiny bells. Full sleeves are gathered to the sleeve head, and finished with a single snap closure to the cuff. There is a subtle antique gold metallic overprint to the fabric at intervals.
It appears to have been little worn.
Measures: Labelled L
Bust is 38" max
Waist seam is dropped a little from natural waist, and is 34"
Length 42.5" approx
Underarm to cuff 21"
As I was taking photos I noticed a pale yellow patch to one sleeve, which hadn't come out when I hand washed (and I'd not noticed before washing!). Ive since soaked the dress and it is barely perceptible - see last photo
Otherwise very good to excellent, clean and ready to wear!
