Dream about going scuba diving into the ocean blue in this darling 1950s novelty dress! It has a bright blue cotton fabric with a contrasting fish, coral and maybe a partial starfish border print in light blue and white. Vintage dress is unlined and zips up the back with a metal zipper.

This beauty comes from my personal collection and I have had many fun times in this gorgeous dress(like seeing Langhorne Slim perform for my first time in the back of a record shop and I've seen him across 3 states since then) but this no longer fits and never will, so she's available for new memories :)

LABEL: Sun Fashions of Hawaii, Made in Honolulu
FABRIC: feels like cotton
SHOULDER TO WAIST: 15.5"
BUST: 33"
WAIST: 25"
HIPS: 54"
LENGTH: 40.5"
HEM: has 2" total of hem folded under but I can tell there is a noticeable lighter edge at the fold so I would not suggest letting it out
SWEEP: 46" measured flat
CONDITION: great, blue color slightly faded in areas most noticeably on the shoulder strap where the color is more white(see close up), has a repair to the right of the zipper above the waistline(see photo), fabric pill below waistline(see photo), there is light faded contrasting color in the coral that looks like it may have had some metallic gold color detailing at some point but without another dress like this to reference I can't be sure
PINNED TO MODEL?: no

☝For reference Marie's measurements are S 14", B 33.5", W 24.5", H 32"

Shipping is calculated at checkout with shipping upgrades available on some items. Need it faster? Please convo me first.

US Orders ship either: USPS First Class or Priority Mail(1-3 days in the mail once shipped) with tracking

Measurements are taken flat and provided in an items description and doubled where appropriate unless otherwise stated. The best way to determine fit is to compare the measurements listed to your own body measurements and also to something you already own and love the fit of. Remember to allow room for movement to ensure a proper fit. If you would like additional measurements, please contact me!

I provide model/dressform sizes for reference. Please note clothing may be clipped on the model to show how they would look on the suitable size but will be denoted after "PINNED TO MODEL?"

Shopping with a mobile device? Click "Item Details" to view the measurements.
I only sell vintage items. Often vintage is one-of-a-kind and it is highly unlikely to find that special item ever again. So, don't live a life of heartbreak and regret, if you have your eye on something, snatch it up before it's too late! It's now or never, doll!

And if you happen to be looking for something in particular, please let me know, I have 100's of pieces of unlisted vintage stock :)
Adapted from a sign in an antique shop and edited to fit being an online vintage clothing seller:

I hunt it, travel to find it, find it, buy it, haul it, wash it, scrub it, repair it, fix it, patch it, steam it, model it, photograph it, edit photographs for it, describe it, research it, compare it, list it, advertise it, relist it, weigh it, display it, care for it, package it, ship it.....
"Now how can I take any less?"

That being said, I may be open to fair offers but please check the shop announcement and social media for coupon codes and the Saleland section for already discounted vintage.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL. There are no refunds or exchanges. Please view all photos, read an items description and measurements thoroughly before placing an order and please ask any and all questions prior to purchase. I want you to LOVE your Storyland Vintage purchase and I am always happy to double check measurements, send additional measurements, describe the color and send additional photos :)
Reserves/layaway's are available for serious customers on items that were not newly listed and not listed in Saleland. Please contact me from the listing page to set this up! Sorry, during store wide sales I can not accommodate reserves. The early bird catches the vintage, doll!
