Availability: in stock - free ship in USA
Prod. Code: 118
This dress is an exceptionally well made dress in evety way. It has been worn very little. I wore it to a summer concert in the park after obtaining it at a vintage clothing store in the late 1980s. It would also be great for a Hawaii party, a cruise trip, a patio party.
Sig Zane has been designing clothes in Hilo, Hawaii since the 70s and he specializes in wonderful Hawaii florals and special details in the dresses themselves. This one you can clearly see all the unique features. It has a slit opening in the top front, below which is a zipper down to the waist area. The neckline is special with a high collar with 3 frog button closure, The top is a flounce capelike feature down to the bustline. And the dress ends in a deep double flounce. A slit style pocket is in the side seam on each side of the dress to hold slim items
LABEL = Sig Zane made in Hilo, Hawaii

FABRIC not stated but I am certain it is 100% medium weight cotton broadcloth which is machine washable in cold water and cool/low tumble dry as that is the fabric that Sig Zane often uses.
CONDITION: Very good plus previously worn vintage with good fabric smell and from smoke-free home. The inside of hemline has just a few small areas where the hem could use slip stitching, but the total flounce hemline has been holding well in place just as it currently is so unless those small areas bother a person of seamtress abilities, you could just ignore them.
I moved to the high desert country 26 miles from Palm Springs 7 years ago and changed my business to hobby rather than just part hobby and blog which were always apart of my website. At that time I downszed a lot of my inventory and sold all my model forms except for one small hanging one--as I went in to buying homes for rental in a 55+ community which takes any extra time I have and supplements our retirement and donating to adoptive pet care. However, my love for vintage anything and early American Bandstand memories just cling to me and I kept this website. I will return to some listings to clear my inventory in the next few years. I just wish my ability to photograph the items to the fullest beauty is no longer available without those wonderful model forms and a special showcasing area that you will see in a few of my "previously sold items" section of the index. I did photograph some of the things with the model forms before we moved so you will still see those in their fullest beauty in some of my recently added items. I hope someone else will be able to enjoy these things as much as I have. Since these dresses are hard to find and especially one with this much special detail and seamtress-ship, I have priced it on the higher end of the previously worn Sig Zane designer dresses. If you do not find the dress as described, I would let you exchange it for item(s) of similar price in my shop but you would have to pay return Priority Mail shipping and the dress would have to be returned in just as good condition as when sent.
