Typical 1970s Indian block print fine sheer cotton hippy dress, label is "Her Excellency' which I've only seen before the odd time.. it's certainly an original one.

Length shoulder to hem 44"
underarm to cuff 21"
Condition: Handwashed and ready to wear, it has some noted minor manufacturing flaws (all photographed)
- Odd irregularity in print (pretty standard as I think hand blocked)
- slight mark to front which I think may be a bit of spilled ink?
- The panels used seem to have some whiter cotton and some has more of a yellow ground - it's on;y noticeable where they meet as seen on the bodice and arm.
No noted damage, hand washed and ready to wear.
