Oceanic Purple | Vintage 1960s 1970s Hippie Flower Power Hand-embroidered Purple Mexican Maxi Dress
We treasure each and every Mexican, embroider and/or ethnic garment we come across. We particularly love anything Mexican, Peruvian, Aztec, African, Batik and hand-printed.
So we have been searching for a Mexican dress for ages!
This in all her purple (so rare ;) glory is entirely hand-embroidered (we peeked behind and yes we could see every stitch)!
Has elastic cuffs but if you like it more flowy, you could always unpick it and just hem it in a little for a more kimono-sleeved look.
No. But it was belted to show how it looks when worn with one. Please refer to the details below for exact measurements.
All measurements are taken with the garment laid flat.
Please DOUBLE the measurements provided to get the approximate circumference measurements.
Alternatively, you can take a piece of your own clothing, lay it flat, measure it and make a comparison.
Approx. Size: S/M - L
Bust: Up to 18in
Waist: 21.5in (Fixed waist. Kind of straight down from the bust.)
Total Length: 43.5in
Hips: Up to 21.5in (Fixed waist. Kind of straight down from the bust.)
Cuff: 4 - 8in (elastic cuff)
Material: Not stated but likely to be a cotton.
Tag: None. Wonderfully hand made and hand-embroidered!
Transparency: Seems opaque, but as with most vintage garments, a slip will help to keep things decent ;)
Condition: Excellent. Has a fabric/thread bump about 16.5in from the hem but it's not faded or anything, probably a fabric artefact.
