This beautiful and rare signature print, "KAMEHAMEHA" evening gown is a rare collectible find.
The gown shows large hibiscus flowers with grey colored accents on a fire engine red ground. The rayon fabric is signed "Kamehameha Prints" next to the original Kamehameha green label.
The colors are vibrant with no fading, no holes, and no rips. There is one pea sized light mark on the lower right front which I have photographed for you. You cannot see it when the dress is on. You have to search for it. Very near that small spot is a larger water mark which would not photograph as it is so light. There is no other damage to the dress.
The gown is floor length being just slightly longer in the back. There is a 4" deep self fabric ruffle which accents the deep scoop neck front and the sweetheart low back. The waist is slightly fitted and then the skirt flares out slightly over the hips to the hem with gored seaming. There is a very long 23" original metal zipper in the back of the dress which works perfectly.
The measurements of the dress taken laid flat and measured straight across are: bust 19" (38), Waist 16 1/2" (33), Hips 24" (48), Waist to hem 43", and shoulder top to hem 60". The ruffles at the neck, shoulders and on the hem each measure 4" deep. The ruffles are lined in beige colored rayon.
The size label inside reads "Size 16". This is a rare larger sized gown.
Questions are always welcome.
