80s does 50s Peach Tiki Print Shirt Waister Dress
Rose from The Golden Girls would look adorable in this, and so would you! A great example of 1980s style from Sally Lou, interpreting a classic 1940s sillhouette. This fun Hawaiian print swing dress is made from a great linen-look blend. It has a standard collar and short sleeves with cute turnup housewife cuffs, and an elasticated waist for comfort (perfect for BBQs!)
This listing is just for the dress, which was photographed with petticoat and without to illustrate fullness: petticoat not included, but you can see our full petticoat collection here.
We've also styled this with our reproduction retro stretch belt (not included) and an original vintage hat (to come to the site soon!)
Immaculate presentation. Unlined.
