Beautiful 1970s al-Harbi Indian sheer cotton in a burgundy-toned floral print. Bib-style bodice with printed trim, front and back. Keyhole neckline with two sets of ties. Ties have metal bells attached to their ends. Long billowing sleeves with elastic cuffs. Large bottom tier of contrasting burgundy fabric. Bib is lined with a brown sheer fabric. This is the real deal from the 1970s.
label: al-Harbi, cotton, M, Made in India
condition: Dress is old stock/unworn. No noticeable wear, fabric is crisp and bright, freshly cleaned and checked for any issues like stains, holes and loose seams. The elastic in the sleeves was worn out from age and we had this replaced with brand new elastic. This is not noticeable, but there are a couple of manufacturing flaws – 2 white dots on the bodice and a pull on the top left shoulder. The white dots can be colored in and the pull is not noticeable.
size: label says medium, but check measurements
bib width across shoulders: 13 1/2”
length: 47 1/2”
sleeve length: 27” from edge of bib
