Darling vintage 40s/50s pinup style red & white tropical floral day dress by Paradise Hawaii, with a full skirt and halter neck. A few condition notes, see details below.

Measurements and Condition:

Fits like: Labeled size 10, fits modern XS to small
Fabric: Feels like cotton with a cotton lining in the bust
Brand: Paradise Hawaii, made in Honolulu
Condition: Very good, with two tiny worn slits and a tiny faint spot on the right side next to the shirring (hardly noticeable), a couple pinpoint holes at the front hem, and a 3/4" slit in the cotton lining (not visible when worn - see photo). There are some loose threads on the outside of the back shirring, and the threads for the shirring at the inside back of the waist has been cut (perhaps for some extra room), but there is still shirring intact with stretch at the back sides of the waist. It is still totally wearable as is, because it will stretch to fit.

Chest: 30" to 34" - stretches with shirring at the back of the waist
Waist: 25" to 36" - stretches with shirring at the back of the waist
