Made by Rima, the label reads, A Commonwealth Product. My search engine didn't pull much information up about it's history so I've dated it early 80s as the zippper is original and of the time and the finish not overlocked, suggesting it's been handcrafted by a smaller company. There are bust darts adding some shaping to an otherwise simple kaftan design.
The cotton fabric is still beautifully crisp and in good condition. I repaired a couple of loose seams in the side and armhole and removed a handstitched attempt at taking in the side hems so it's back to it's original design.
