Striped Sarong Skirt
Ulah Outwits the Code.
Splashing in a jungle pool, swinging on a vine Öwhen Ulah (Dorothy Lamour) did those things in the wilds of Malaysia, it didn't matter if her sarong revealed a bit much, or even slipped off entirely.
Ray Milland was always a gentleman.
Back in the States together, however, they had the Hollywood Production Code to deal with: îno inner thigh visible... no navel... no 'bosum'...."
(Also, "no kisses longer than 35 seconds" and "man must keep both feet on floor" during love scenes; censors were on the set to enforce the rules.)
This is the solution she arrived at. A sarong-style skirt that meets the Code but still feels free and sensuous.
Like the risky original, it encourages a subtle and absorbing side-to-side sway. Try one on. See your gait evolve.
Striped Sarong Skirt (No. 7270). Breezy yet demure cotton dobby wrap skirt in a brightly-hued rainbow stripe pattern. Two buttons at waist on right. Finished seams. Falls alluringly to mid-calf.
Ulah was a stickler for authenticity. Imported.
