These Indian cotton dresses are so sought after, and you can see why! From the 1970s, this has an eye-catching all over floral design with a large peacock motif, with lovely dark blue accents to pick out the deepest hue. The little additions of the hand painted gold paint across the whole of the dress really shows the craftsmanship of these pieces, and is so charming.
