Kaftan Gift

Vintage silk red, white and black kaftan made in India, similar short version here




I saw this kaftan at a street market months ago.  I did not purchase it then as it had a hole in the front.

The other day I bought some antique pieces from this same vendor via Instagram and when delivering the other items she handed me the kaftan and said to me that she remembered that I had liked it and that it was a gift.

I repaired it, though poorly and am wearing today for the first time.

Oh what a thoughtful gift! It's good you were able to repair it too! it's s stunning colour on you and I'll always love maxi pieces like this :)

Hope you are having a nice weekend :) We spent the day enjoying the sunshine outside at some parks, even if it was a bit windy!

This is so lovely on you Lorena. And I don't see where you repaired the hole at all.

That was so sweet of her! I think it looks great, so flowy and comfy and perfect for the heat of the summer.
