60s Hawaiian Maxi Dress
Hawaiian Dress From The 60s
Great Hawaiian style dress from the late 60s early 70s. This dress is made in a heavy tie dye linen or cotton print. The accent trim is gold and blue metallic - the shimmer does not photograph but it is very festive. The dress has a "v" neck, short sleeves. empire waist, princess seams, two on seam side pockets, full back nylon zipper, and a high front slit. The dress is fully lined in light blue linen. This is an extremely well made, high end dress. There is no designer label but I believe this is a dress by Roger Milot for Fred Pearlberg . The blue union label (early 70s) is still attached.

Please note: This dress was to small for my dress form (form measurements below) and could not be zippered completely.
Condition: Vintage - Very good to excellent. Two issues of note - the zipper is a bit tacky and the sleeves are lined in what looks to be a clear tulle. On one arm the tulle lining is pulling apart from the dress at the sleeve hem, but this is noticeable when worn.
