Just arrived: The Bernie Dexter for Babygirl "All Day Long" Sarong Dress for Summer. Long Awaited! Fabulous breezy cotton sarong dress with spaghetti straps, elastic back, and twist tie at side waist. Back zipper entry. Bodice is fully lined. Misses sizing. Great dress for Spring and Summer - comfortable enough to wear all day!
There are two prints to choose from: Atomic martini and a fab peach colored Tattoo Print fabric. The Atomic Martini print is featured to the left.
Bernie's notes: "In Hawaii sarong dresses were very popular starting in the 1940s! A lot of military men brought them home for their honeys! They became MORE popular in the 1950s. In the 1960's American companies like Alex of Miami were making them in Florida as resort wear."
