This sleeveless maxi-length late 1960s shift dress has a “dayglo” tropical floral Hawaiian print that is totally ready to glow in a black light! The neon pink and green flowers pop against a violet-blue background on the smooth and soft polished cotton fabric. The scoop neckline fastens at each shoulder with 2 silver metal buttons. 2 cute little bows trim the side slits at the hem. The right side seam has a slit pocket at the hip. The shoulder buttons are the only fastenings on the dress. It is in excellent condition, with no flaws to note. This fabulous 1960s Hawaiian maxi dress is perfect for a tiki party, or a resort vacation!
Long diagonal darts give a bit of shape to the bust and waist, but the overall dress fit is designed to be loose and unconstructed from bust to hem, as reflected in the measurements. I have tried to give the approximate maximum size in inches that I think the dress should fit. The best thing would be to compare the dress measurements to a garment that fits you well—and feel free to ask me any sizing questions, of course! The last photo shows the dress unpinned from the mannequin, to give a better idea of its actual size.
