@Jumblelaya: I just adore this vintage Hawaiian -- it's as sweetly seductive as an island breeze.

The Details.

••Designer label: --
••Fabric: soft pure cotton; bodice lined in white cotton
••Color: jaunty turquoise blue with white, darker blue, indigo, and chartreuse Midcentury print of tropical flowers and big oval leaves
••Fitted bodice with shelf bust and halter neck, nipped waist, and a joyously full skirt with hidden side pockets, so cute
••Back nylon Talon zipper (appears to be a replacement for, most likely, a busted metal zipper)
••Shown displayed with a crinoline, not included, but we offer the same crinoline separately in our store if you are interested :)
••Jewelry, crinolines, and other display accessories are not included in sale unless specified

The Measurements.

About a modern XS; does look like it could be altered to be larger.
Bust (underarm to underarm measured flat, then doubled): 32".
Waist: 24".
Hips: Full.
Bodice, shoulder (approximated) to waist seam: about 16".
Skirt, waist to hem: 26".

Note: these are the measurements of the garment itself.
Please allow adequate "wiggle room" for proper fit -- at least an inch is recommended.

The Condition.

This 50+ year old dress is in Excellent condition. No noticeable flaws or issues found. Freshly cleaned and bright, it presents crisply and beautifully.

To note: one or two of the white leaves have an extremely faint tinge of green, like perhaps the dye overran there long ago, but it's SO hard to see I had to search over and over again just to find it again. Definitely not noticed when dress is worn! Also, it appears this dress was once larger and was taken in about 2" at the back waist along the zipper (they did a nice job, as you can't tell on the outside that it has been altered). It's possible that you could reverse the alteration to make a larger dress, since the fabric appears to still be intact. As mentioned, I don't think this Talon zipper is the original, although it is an older one.
