I found this dress watered down, dirty, and wrinkled in a estate sale. I thought I can make a nice quilt out of it. So, I bought it and the lady asked me what am I going to do with this old dress. So, I told her what's in my mind. Brought it to work ,stared at it and I was about to cut it in pieces when I told myself, wow this is my size. I turned it inside out and found the tag. Went to my computer and googled the guy. I did'nt know him. To my surprise Alfred Shaheen was one of the most prominent designer from Hawaii. I brought it to the cleaners and wore it asap, I love it, my boyfriend loves it and suggested, I should keep it. Yesterday, I showed it to my best friend Phaisee and she told me, the fabric print is a BLUE WILLOW design and she confirmed that the dress was made in the 1950's.
