This is an unused old store stock Indian printed cotton dress, never used, and one of a lot that I’ve acquired that were stored for the last 45 years in their plastic bags. This particular dress is printed in an ornate floral and foliate pattern with larger floral motifs appearing in black bands around the dress and at the shoulders. The dress is printed in colours of black, violet purple, olive green and with metallic gold accents against an off-white background. The fabric was made in India of 100% cotton, woven in a lightweight gauzy construction, great for summer wear. The dress has no closures except for a pair of ties at the open neckline with sequin ends - otherwise, it simply fits over the head. The waist is elasticized and the cuffs close with a single button.
Label: Cotton CA-02911 Made in India. CA-02911 is the Canadian textile identification number for the Indian Palace located on Place Phillips in Montreal, and which specialized in the import of goods from India.
Size: Size L for large is indicated, although I would take that with a grain of salt - these Indian cotton dresses were never quality controlled, so please rely on the following measurements for fit, taking the style of the dress into account (please note that this dress has no closures, must go over the head, and fit loosely):
Shoulders: 14 1/2” from shoulder/sleeve seam to shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeves: 25” from the shoulder/sleeve seam
Sleeve inseam: 21”
Bust: 43” around
Waist: 39" around, unstretched, but meant to fall loosely
Hips: 58” around
Length: 52“, measured lying flat
Condition: It is in excellent condition, but please note that the elastic in the waist has limited elasticity. This is typical for these Indian dresses and really doesn’t affect fit
This is a wonderful Indian cotton dress from the 70s - rare to find old unused examples like this!
