This costume was once used for the New York Metropolitan Opera! It is assumed to have been hand-sewn many decades ago and possibly used multiple times for productions (Hansel & Gretel is written on the tag!). The closures in back show that it is adjustable for people of different sizes. There is no boning in the bodice, but it is still very structured. Beautiful hand done stitching and internal tailoring. Hook and eyes are used for closure on the bodice and snaps below. Please, note: the sash has been removed from the dress, but a simple ribbon tied around the waist should suffice!

The undergarments are separates; a skirt and a peasant top. The underskirt is not fitted and in fact, very large. You might need to tack it or pin it, according to your size. The top is one size fits all.

Such a lovely Halloween costume!! Surely no one else will wear the same!
