Dear Readers, could it be that Summer is almost over? Next week will usher in September, and on my side of the hemisphere the leaves will begin to fall. Well, let's just be honest. In Southern California we have two seasons, hot and cold. The leaves turn and fall in December!
As I've lamented so many times before, I am really falling in love with Hawaiian prints. Some of it due to the amazing dresses I see at the Record Hops and Vintage Events. And some from all the Tiki parties that the Fella attends.
I sat glued to my Instagram when all of you were at Tiki Oasis. It inspired me to really look deep into the depths of the internet for Hawaiian print items. Let's share some amazing dresses and affordable patterns I've found!
Now this says, "80's does 50's" - but, I think this dress looks more 40's with the kimono style sleeves. I think with the proper hair and bangles -- this dress could rock! And you really can't beat $40.00
An Alfred Shaheen for $75.00!!!! The catch? The waist is 24
One of my favorite vintage pattern sites, Evadress.com - has this popular style pattern for $18.00!
A really great pattern! Love this one. And a steal at $11.42
This Dress Pattern is on sale on Ebay and Etsy for $225.00!!! Buy the same pattern Here for $40.00. If you want to make it with the full skirt option - simply use another full skirt pattern you own, and attach it to the above bustier. Learning how to Frankenstein patterns together is essential!
