I just love the colors of this stunning 1950s Malihini gown. It is truly as classic as they come, a ruffled holomuu style with print of the Aerangis Hawaiian Star Flower vine. The print is somewhat unique, having areas of the wine red background intentionally less saturated. This is NOT fade, it's a very clever use of color. The dress follows the curves of the body and flares to the ruffled hem. It closes up the center back with a sturdy metal zipper.
Forgive the poor fit on our size 6 dress form - the size 0 is temporarily unavailable.
Marked a vintage size 10, this has a slimmer ribcage
Label: Malihini, Made in Hawaiian, 10
Condition: Very Good minus
This dress is clean and ready to wear. The second layer of ruffle was added later - maybe moved up from the hem. I find nothing else to note.
