As was shown in a previous post, here is another example of the Far East influence in 70s fashion.
This is an illustration showcasing a sewing pattern from 1976. The commentary that accompanies the illustration is as follows:
A touch of the Orient expresses itself in this flowing caftan. Tiny spring blossoms float over silky lengths of fabric to lend you the air of a princess in a Japanese fairy tale. The attached scarf is a fluttery grace note. Authentic accessories complete the Far East ambiance. Fabric, 100% Dacron polyester “Ultressa” by Burlington-Klopman.
