Delightful Vintage KONA KAI Hawaiian Fit n Flare Swing Halter Dress in a whimsical Autumn tones muted floral print. Cotton dress with fitted petal bust/crumb-snatcher bra top with bow detail and vertical seaming.
Halter strap is fixed on the right bust with a 2 button adjustable left side. Full halter style upper back is elastic smocked for'over the head' entry. Inner bra top lined construction. Flared circle skirt is 4 panels with right side hidden hip pocket!Not quite full circle, the full skirt flares to 130 circumference. Condition is Very Good to Excellent!
The back elastic smocking is vital and springy in the center; and moderately relaxed at the sides with most elastic still viable. A competent seamstress should be able to tighten the relaxed smocking, if desired. The looser smocking makes for a larger fit.
There was a 3 sewn hem that was let out (slight crease remains to the crisp cotton fabric), and a small pea-size hole directly above the original sewn hem on the back hem, right side. Perhaps that is why a previous owner hemmed the dress!!
The flaws do not detract at all from this fabulous & unique , and, ultimately extremely wearable vintage Hawaiian dress! Approximate Measurements taken on garment exterior. Top of bodice to waist seam: 10.
Top of bodice to original hem length: 39. IN THEIR INFINITE WISDOM NOT!!! , E-BAY HAS FLIPPED THE PLAYING FIELD OUT OF DESPERATION FOR MORE SALES! A quick note about the Current Health Crisis.
