Considered aloha attire, this loose and breezy garment has its origins in the 1800s when missionaries adapted their Mother Hubbard-style dresses to fit Hawaiian women. Originally a tool of assimilation, native Hawaiians have since reclaimed this dress to symbolize their heritage and its popularity has spread worldwide. Today, Hawaiians wear the mu'umu'u to social events, family gatherings, and for some styles of hula. Typical 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.
Folkwear's sewing pattern features three views, each with a different sleeve option: sleeveless, short sleeve, and elbow-length sleeve. The short sleeve is an open ruffle, while the longer sleeve has elastic at the cuff and falls to 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. The back is gathered to a pointed yoke and the front yoke is a smooth crew shape. This dress is a perfect warm-weather outfit for comfort and style.
