********SINCE THIS IS AUTHENTICALLY VINTAGE AND FROM THE 1990'S, PLEASE SEE DIMENSIONS BELOW, (BY LAST *********) RATHER THAN SIZE ABOVE.  DRESS LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE PICTURE AND IS STRETCHABLE FABRIC. ORIGINALLY SOLD IN MY STORE FOR $129.00.
ONCE UPON A TIME, ONLY THOSE WHO LIVED IN THE COASTAL AREAS HAD THE AWESOME PRIVILEGE TO WEAR SURF OR FUN CLOTHING. HOWEVER IN THE AFFLUENT AREAS, THOSE WHO HAD THE MEANS, (BECAUSE SOME LIVED BEYOND THEIR MEANS) COULD GO ON SPRING BREAK OR GO IN THE SUMMER. THEY BOUGHT THESE THINGS AND BROUGHT THEM BACK HOME TO WEAR (AND SHOW OFF THEIR TONED BODIES). 

WELL!!!!!!!!!!!! I GOT REAL JEALOUS, BECAUSE I, AND PEOPLE I KNEW, WANTED TO WEAR THESE SAME FUN/BEACH/SURF THINGS AND BE STARED AT TOO, WITH OUR TONED BODIES, AT THE LOCAL POOL (WE COULDN'T AFFORD TO GO TO THE  OCEAN.  BUT, WE  COULDN'T EVEN GET THE PEOPLE IN THE COASTAL AREAS TO SEND US THESE THINGS,  BECAUSE THEY SAID WE LIVED IN "COW COUNTRY, WITH MANURE AND ALL THAT STUFF."

I SEETHED. THEN, I BEGAN THINKING WE ALL COULD WEAR THESE SAME THINGS, IF I OPENED A SURF STORE . SO, THAT'S WHAT I DID. I OPENED A SURF STORE, RIGHT HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF KANSAS, (NOT A REAL BRIGHT IDEA AT THAT TIME).

FYI:  JAMS WORLD WAS STARTED BY A CALIFORNIA SURFER NAMED DAVE ROCKLEN IN THE 1950'S.  IT WAS CALLED SURFLINE HAWAII WHEN HE AND HIS WIFE MOVED TO HAWAII.  FROM THERE HE SOLD JAMS AND THEN IN THE LATE 80'S AND EARLY 90'S BEGAN MAKING WOMEN'S DRESSES LIKE THIS ONE.
THIS BELONGED TO ME.  I SELDOM WORE IT, BECAUSE I HAD LOTS OF CLOTHES AND WORE ALL SORTS OF CLOTHING, IN ORDER TO SELL IT IN MY STORE.
THESE FUN ITEMS SOLD RIGHT ALONGSIDE MAUI AND SONS HAWAII, GOTCHA, LOCAL  MOTION HAWAII, CAT.CHIT, ORIGINAL JAMS, QUIKSILVER, LIFE'S A BEACH ETC., THAT BECAME PARTICULARLY WELL-KNOWN DURING THE EARLY 80'S, DURING THE FABULOUS USA BEACH CRAZE. EVERYBODY HAD TO HAVE ONE OF THESE THINGS.
I KEPT ALL MY OTHER THINGS SINCE THE TIME I CLOSED MY STORE, YOU ANIMAL YOU. WHEN I FIRST OPENED THE STORE (IN KANSAS) EVERYBODY THOUGHT WE ACTUALLY HAD COWS WALKING DOWN THE MIDDLE OF OUR STREETS.

WELL!!!!!!!!!!!THAT WAS, UNTIL THIS SURF AND SKATE SHOP BECAME KNOWN AS HAVING THE COOLEST THINGS IN THE COUNTRY. THERE WERE SURF BOARDS, MANNEQUINS HANGING UPSIDE DOWN WEARING SURFER AND SKATE CLOTHES, REAL ANIMALS CRUISING THE STORE, IN CONDOS BUILT JUST FOR THEM, NEON DUNE BUGGIES, BODY GLOVE, OAKLEY, NO FEAR, BILLABONG, LIFE'S A BEACH, MAUI, T & C SURF HAWAII AND OTHER NEON SIGNS BEFORE SOME OF THESE COMPANIES WERE EVEN WELL KNOWN YET. THERE WERE RUBBER RATS HANGING FROM THE CEILING, HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE GIRLS ON STAFF AND IT WAS REALLY FUN. THIS STORE WAS WRITTEN UP IN ALL THE RAGS (MAGAZINES). THESE ARE NOT ONLY VINTAGE, BUT WILL BECOME EVEN MORE VALUABLE AS TIME GOES BY.
********** FROM ARMPIT TO ARMPIT THE MEASUREMENT IS 19-1/2" (TIMES TWO).  FROM TOP OF SHOULDER SEAM TO BOTTOM OF HEM ON DRESS IS NEARLY 31".  

SHIPPING & HANDLING IS $5.50  IN THE USA, FIRST CLASS.
MUST BE PAID FOR WITHIN 5 DAYS OF WINNING THE BID.
