Please bear with us as this site goes through some transformations and updates. I recently moved to another Island and need this time to unpack and organize. Hopefully, I'll be in the sewing swing again by the end of February!


Yes in Dede! Our made-in-Hawaii Aloha Wear is probably the most comfortable garment you will wear. Fashioned of 100% cotton dobby barkcloth, our Hawaiian dresses are designed with the shape of real women in mind. We've selected an enchanting array of retro inspired florals in a full complement of rainbow hues.

Casually classic, our dress is styled with a modified boat neck; two deep side pockets (a must!) and a modest yet alluring side slit to show off that shapely calf. While sizes Small, Medium and Large have cap sleeves, we listened to our Extra Large and Plus sized ladies and lengthened their Yes in Dede dress sleeves to the elbow (plus a wee bit more).

Versatility is key as we designed the front the same as the back. Perhaps you are hastening to a luau, maybe spilled some kalua pig and poi, simply turn your Yes in Dede Aloha Wear around, have your back to the tiki torches and continue to party. The tea length hemline encourages you to wriggle your toes by the ocean's edge with carefree delight.

Simplicity is our standard. No buttons or zippers to malfunction. Slip your dress over your head; tuck a plumeria over your ear. You look lovely! You feel pretty! Our Yes in Dede Hawaiian garments are wrinkle resistant, machine washable, air in a dryer-ok. Here in Paradise we let the fragrant tradewinds whisper our tropical clothing dry. Continue with kau kau (meal) and inu inu (drink) as our dresses are designed for the generous of body and of spirit

Versatile. Comfortable. Classic. Simply stated, simply designed, simply perfect.
