Again With The Tapa Cloth

I found another shirt at a thrift store made of fabric that resembles the tapa cloth I have written about before:

And it was somewhat similar to the shirt below, also found at a thrift store, that I sold last year:

The next two photos are of the tapa cloth that I found with all of the ephemera and such that was from my mother-in-law's cruise to Hawaii back in the 1930's.

I just think it's cool-looking - I guess that's why I'm writing about it again!

Oh yes, can you imagine the Island's in the 30's? Would love to have been on that cruise! Very pretty fabric & now I know the name of it! Who says old dogs (& old ladies) can't learn new tricks (stuff). Thanks!

I have an angel ornament made of tapa cloth that I got in Hawaii in 1978, it is striped and the same color as your first shirt. Very nice. Love T
