Hilo Hattie Maxi Kimono Empire Wrap Waist Dress

BEAUTIFUL Hilo Hattie dress in a fabulous maxi style with kimono sleeves and an empire waistline and a sash that ties around the back. The neckline is a deep v with a slight wrap of the fabric at the empire waist. Pleating at waistline too. Long zipper up the back.

The colors of this dress are amazing! Black background with bold, large flowers of golden yellow and off-white / tan. There are smaller accent flowers of green and white. This design has a very strong Oriental feel to it with the black flower / branch silhouette. Fabric is 100% acrylic and is machine washable / machine dryable.

This is a truly amazing 60's piece from Hilo Hattie!
Excellent vintage condition!
