Talk about too cute! This amazing Irish dance costume appears to have been made sometime in the late 60s or early 70s. The material is heavy cotton or cotton poly blend in soft white. The stiff skirt is pleated and features forest green and metallic gold insets that show when you kick. The dragon crests are all embroidered applique in metallics with gold braid trim for tails. The cuffs are absolutely amazing - big, wide belled military inspired sleeves. It zips up the back and has a decorative sash that velcroes on and off. A striking and one of a kind find.

✂-----Measurements

Shoulders: 14"
Bust: 34"
Waist: 25"
Hips: Free
Length: 32.5"

Condition: Very Good
There is a 5" long light water spot/stain from getting damp in storage, at the back left crease of the skirt. This is subtle and does not detract. The dress does appear to have been enlarged slightly from the original size with cloth along each side of the zipper, but this is hidden when the sash is velcroed on. (The velcro appears to be a later addition, but works very well.) I find nothing else to note, very wearable, sturdy and beautiful.
