Ilimi is as radiant as the Hawaiian sunset. Whether lounging in the sand or taking in the sights, she turns heads wherever she goes.

This gorgeous dress is such an amazing piece. Crafted entirely out of Chinese motif China silk, it takes the traditional Hawaiian sarong dress and adds so much extra. The faux sarong is lined in the brightest orange, so any slight breeze or sway of the hips will reveal this intoxicating hue. The bodice is gathered and the straps have button holes which can either attach at the back of the bodice or tie behind the neck. The dress zips up the side. The tag inside reads "Jenine's Costume Designing, Honolulu".

Structurally sound. This dress was obviously well-loved, as its seams have been touched up over the years. No holes in the fabric, but there are a few stains. Luckily the watercolor nature of the print makes most of them unnoticeable. The most obvious stain is shown in the fifth picture on the aquamarine portion of the skirt. I haven't tried to remove the stains, so there's a decent chance they could come out. One of the interior buttons has been replaced.
