What could say summer any better than a stunning Hawaiian gown? This rich, wonderful, dramatic piece from Malihini is truly eye catching. Warm chocolate brown has a bring of gray and off white, accented by orange flashes from the lining in the sleeves, and at the side slits. The frog closure at the neck is orange as well. The six-pointed star flowers grown on vines with broad leaves. I love the shape of this garment - the hourglass curves created by long, shapely princess seams. Closes with a side metal zipper. A treasure!

Bust: 36"- snug 37"
Waist: 27"
Hips: 37"
Length: 51"

This dress is in good condition. There are a few scattered yellow storage spots - two to the far left of the bust, between the seam and the zipper, and then speckled along the bottom of the dress, as much as a few inches above the hemline. The dress has been altered in somewhat in the past, and could possibly be let out, but I think it, being rayon, that it would be best as it is. There is a little wear on the zipper placket. It is entirely wearable, exceptionally lovely, and sturdy enough for much more wear. A special piece.
