Originally designed for Queen Liliuokalani, this graceful gown (holoku) features a long train in the back with a loop that allows you to carry the train on your wrist. It has front and back darts for a nice fit, back zipper closing, and a circular cut collar/capelet that covers the shoulders and extends to a deep point in the back. The hemline and the collar have gathered ruffle trim. This beautiful pattern is uncut, still factory folded, and in excellent condition. A classic and timeless Hawaiian gown that is perfect for a wedding or any formal occasion!
The original pattern
for this design was made especially for Queen Liliuokalani. The
photograph of the red gown was taken at Washington Place, the former
residence of the Queen.
