Silky RAYON Vintage 50s Hawaiian Sarong VLV Dress L W30

Silky RAYON Vintage 50s Hawaiian Sarong VLV Dress L W30 - offered by Posh Pig Vintage

From the description -
Terrific vintage Hawaiian sarong-style sun dress from the 50s, made out of a slick and silky tropical bamboo and water print rayon in shades of blue/green, white and black. Fitted bodice is lined in soft white cotton and boned, gathered at the center front with ties, and has turn-down flaps at the top of the bust line. Skirt is sarong/wrap style and is not adjustable in how tight it wraps but is open under the wrapped material and therefore forgiving in fit. There is an attached sash you tie at the side and the bodice has a neck/halter strap you can pick the length of via different button holes (or tuck it in and go strapless). Side metal zipper with hook and eye at top. No tags or labels, but was a well-done, professionally made dress.

Excellent condition, fully wearable and presentable. There is just a very faint water/perspiration mark on the side of the bust flap, hard to see but could probably be spot treated if necessary.

38" bust laid flat (might fit a 40" bust if your cup size isn't that large), 30" waist, 44" hips with the skirt overlapping naturally, 9" underarm to waist, 34" waist to hem on the right side (slightly longer that side because of the sarong draping on the left).

That’s a really nice design, too bad there are no labels on the dress as it would be interesting to track down the textile supplier to see if it was a closed print. We have a penchant for air brushed backgrounds and are always looking for new ideas for fabric designs.
