This leopard print free size french crepe short kaftan is just beautiful. By Cocomo Australia which is part of Embellished Kaftans, a brand based on the Sunshine Coast, conceived and created by Karen Chandwani who was born and bred in Mumbai, India, each digital print is inspired by nature and manufactured to exacting specifications in India from the finest non sheer french crepe fabrics with high quality hand applied crystals.
It’s free size, I surmise that it would be suitable up to a 22, I am normally an 18-20 and have a rounded apple shape so straight cut garments do not normally suit me, this one has room on me which is why I am suggesting up to a size 22. The fabrication and styling are of an excellent premium quality and feels fabulously slinky against the skin, this one has so many print features, from the waist down it features animal print in golds and tans which graduates up to greens and blues and finishes at the top in a gorgeous shade of turquoise.. The neckline features a classic Indian inspired border print with hand placed crystals into the design with a touch of red. It has a plunging neckline which is finished with a corset style tie and metal tassels.
It is essentially a large rectangle with a row of stitching sewn 15cm from the edge of the fabric, this seam finishes 32cm up from the hemline to create movement, the ACTUAL garment measurements laying flat are:
- 95cm from the back of the neck to the hemline
- 107cm from the side edges
- 75cm across from stitched seam to stitched seam, so will fit up to a 150cm hip.
Please note that any other fashion item or jewellery have been photographed for style suggestion only, for a visual size reference I am normally an 18-20 and 170cm tall, due to the delicate nature of the fabric and the hand applied crystals, dry cleaning is the recommended care suggestion.
