Gorgeous Bombshell dress By Alfred Shaheen of Honolulu! Fantastic vintage tiki gods print, extremely rare. Th e background is a bright golden yellow with stylized tiki gods throughout the print and metallic gold ink details.Brown, white and turquoise print with metallic gold of several tiki gods, shields and arrows. Fabric feels like cotton, it is not flimsy and keeps it shape well.
Pin-up hourglass shape with a nipped waist and full skirt. Draped bust with pleated straps that can be worn off the shoulder. Sexy shirring at the waist. Skirt has many flattering box pleats.
Original hem, - looks like fabric selvedge on the end. Has metal zipper and hook/eye closure. Bodice is lined - rest is unlined.Has 2 hanging straps in interior - looks like there might of been 2 more in front on the seam that were cut off at one point, see close up pic 11, they are out of they same material as the 2 other hanging straps, just an odd place to have them- not sure how the dress is worn due to pleated straps, they may be unseen when worn. The removal of them did not damage the dress and they can be completely removed if desired. The Shaheen label is original 50's label and has a piece of a small white label still attached that has been torn off- there are some numbers on it lot #? The dress has been hand washed and is clean. There are no holes but some small stains, the most prevalent is in the front as seen in pic 8 (i did not attempt to remove it), there are about 4-5 more tiny faded'dot' size stains here and there (pics 9, 10 and last), mainly on front, see pics, because of the liveliness of the print they are harder to see.
That print is to die for- amazing dress! Please note this dress will be sent insured and signature required. No size tag use measurements.
