Kalamkari Kurtis In 60s Fashion Trends:
Old is gold. Truly! The 60s look recreation is the new fashion. This Cotton salwar tops material with striking kalamkari block print pattern is turned into kalamkari kurtis style.
Elbow length sleeves, high necks, boat necks are styles we follow these days. The elbow length sleeve style is used in this kalamkari kurtis model.
This mustard yellow kalamkari print material in mod dress pattern with 60s look is my idea instead of the kalamkari kurtis.
The mod meant modern, a subculture popular in 60s in London, England. The period of fashion innovation for women.
Unisex dresses blue jeans, button-down shirts are popular. Materials like polyester, nylon, acrylic, vinyl, and PVC were the fashion.
This style is to an extent, like a sheath dress. But here it is made of kalamkari material like kalamkari kurtis. Sheath dress, a straight cut dress with no waist seam. It comes in styles with short sleeves and a knee length.
60s fashion trends from Harpersbazaar magazine is an inspiration.
I wanted it to be a simple multipurpose top that can go with palazzo, skirt or jeans. The high-low dress pattern was an addition which can avoid any discomfort with the short tops in combination with any type of bottoms. This top can be worn like in any kalamkari kurtis combinations you would want to wear.
60s look Design | Kalamkari Kurtis:
The sheath is usually a close-fitting dress. I’ve made this kalamkari kurtis style, a simple, sheath fashioned (mod pattern) but not with many fitting darts.
It falls flat on the body aiding for the comfort of different body types. This is the most simple top to stitch but gives a stylish 60s look as you can see in the images below.
The above elbow length sleeves and boat neck gives a classy look. I’ve combined this 60s look kalamkari kurtis with blue palazzo pants like kalamkari kurtis.
