Description

I love this! I think it's an older costume (particularly the paste decorations - they look a good deal earlier) that has been reworked over the decades - I guess there's a combination of 1950s or a little before, up to 1970s I'd say. The headers seems to have had newer beads attached, and the mask is probably the 'newest' part of the outfit.

The lady I purchased it from was given it as a gift by a dancer friend in 1985, and stored it carefully ever since!

It's a lovely pink cotton velvet. The skirt has a multicoloured integral tulle underskirt, and a velcro fastening with metal hook and eye to waist. The bodice is fully boned and corset fashion, fastening with metal hooks.

All decoration is complete and super sparkly - tempting to keep and display but it is strong enough to be worn, should you have the occasion (if you need one!)

Measures:

Shown unclipped on a size 8uk mannequin

Skirt waist currently just over 24"

Skirt length just over 28" waist to hem

Bodice across bust approx 36/38" including darts (I'd suggest a narrower bra band though, probably 30-32)

Bodice length CF (at busk area) 12"

Bodice side seam 9"

Headdress decorative area approx 6" x 8"



Condition:

I imagine this has seen some wear over the years as a costume, and there are some marks to the skirt as shown. The bodice is good with just a few missing stitches. One strap was loose so I have reattached. There are no holes or areas of damage however, and all works as it should.

Please study the photographs, as they form part of the description - thank you!

Do enquire for postage outside of the UK.
