FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
Hilo Hattie is an Alohan designer, who has been a serious presence in Hawaii since the early 1960s. The company is no stranger to outsizes,and features in the Guiness Book of Record for the world's largest Hawaiian shirt (40 XL). This larger size dress is absolutely stunning! Made from white cotton with a faint abstract background, the print features Hawaiian dancing girls, wise men, guitars, flowers and island scenes.
This dress falls softly from a smocked yoke to a deep frill of the same fabric at the hem. The short sleeves are lightly elasticated at the cuff, as are the shoulders and back for a flattering fit. There is one side pocket.
The shape is both comfortable and flattering, and can be worn belted (see our beautiful belts department) or loose, on or off the shoulders. There are no fastenings, it simply slips on over the head.
There are two labels, one with the designer's name 'Hilo Hattie Hawaii' and the other giving care instructions. The dress was made in Hawaii, USA, and the size given is XL. I think of it more as 'freesize', or it would be great as a maternity frock!
This really pretty dress is in excellent condition, without any marks or tears, although the elastic may need replacing at some point Approximate measurements are: underarms 51 inches/129.5 cms; at the widest point/hips 60 inches/153 cms;length over all from shoulder 44¾ inches/114 cms
