Hawaiian Mu’umu’u by Folkwear

Hawaiian Mu’umu’u by Folkwear

Considered aloha attire, this loose and breezy garment has its origins in the 1800s when missionaries adapted their Mother Hubbard-style dresses to suit Hawaiian women. Originally a tool of assimilation, native Hawaiians have since embraced this dress,  wearing it to social events, family gatherings, and for some styles of hula. The mu’umu’u’s popularity has spread worldwide due to its comfort, ease of wear, and colorful prints. Typically mu‘umu‘u are made of cotton and feature tropical florals, or traditional Hawaiian motifs.  But you can make this garment from silks or linens or solid fabrics as well. We recommend authentic Hawaiian Palaka!

Sizing: XS-3XL


SKU: 160 Mu'umu'u (muumuu) Categories: , , ,

Construction Notes: This pattern features three views: sleeveless, short sleeve, and elbow-length sleeve. The short sleeve is bell-shaped, while the longer sleeve has elastic at the cuff and falls to below the elbow. All three dresses feature princess seams, side darts with cleverly hidden pockets in the dart (optional), and an interior elastic belt to add additional shaping to the front as desired.  The back is gathered to a pointed yoke and the front yoke is a smooth crew-neck shape. This dress is a perfect warm-weather outfit for comfort and style.
