Vintage 40's 50's Rare White Taffeta Hand Painted Hawaiian Robe Dressing Gown
A beautiful and rare soft white taffeta robe / dressing gown fron the late 40's to 50's + Handpainted in Hawaii / Honolulu
by the same company that made many hand painted ties and shirts for men.
A big red & pink hibiscus with green leaves, airbrushed on the skirting
and smaller flower on the sleeve.
Wide lapels & padded shoulders
Full length skirting + Interior tie + Belt loops + Pinked seams
Original belt is missing - I used grosgrain ribbon. If you can find vintage white taffeta, a new tie should be easy to make.
