Miss Shaheen Dress - Made in USA - Alfred Shaheen


Ask a question

Alfred Shaheen was a textile industrialist who is credited with popularizing the Hawaiian shirt with his Hawaii based clothing business which began in 1948. Using rich fabrics with tropically inspired prints, these garments took off in popularity. Elvis even wears an Alfred Shaheen shirt on the cover for his Blue Hawaii album.

This cotton shift dress was created in the early 1960's under the Miss Shaheen name of his ladies clothing line, and made in the USA.

A lovely mint green and white gingham with a print of butterflies flitting about the tall grass, with pattern perfectly matched so as not to disrupt the pattern even on the back where the zipper cuts through it, a mark of true quality in manufacturing.

Measures 42" in length from shoulder to bottom hem, and measures 36" around the waist. For best fit, a waist of no more than 32" and 5'5" or taller will give the wearer the perfectly mod 60's look. Pair it with white go-go boots!

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
