Liberty House by Tropicana Hawaii dress, size S
This vintage Hawaiian dress is by Liberty House by Tropicana and was made in Hawaii.
It has a U shaped neckline with embroidered flowers and edged in lace, both of which are in an antique white.
The cap sleeves are also edged in lace.
The inside lining of the neck is in white.
The back embroidered panel is higher and there is a 19" long zipper.
It has a vertical wide stripe pattern with flowers and leaves in violet, sandy-maize, black, green, light magenta-red, grape, and antique sand.
At some point in time the hem was taken up - it currently has a 4 3/4" wide hem.
There is some gathering below the front lace which gives the front area more room.
The front right side has some color fading on a wide color stripe 2 1/4" inward from the side seam pocket (it only has 1 pocket), the lower front side and back, and some areas on the lower left seam and a horizontal fade line which is 12" up from the hem.
The dress is wearable (it just has faded areas) - you could wear it as it is or make it shorter, or it could be added to someone's collection.
It's from a stylist's inventory.
She originally purchased it from a former model who bought it in Honolulu and wore it to a wedding in Hawaii years ago.
It was then worn in several movies shot in Hawaii.
We purchased it from the stylist when one of our staff was on a buying trip in Kauai.
The faded areas were there the last time it was worn in a movie.
