A few years ago I had the opportunity to purchase boxes of items cleared out of an old theater's storage and among the items were several 20s era burlesque costumes with a promotional picture of the dancer who wore them! These items have been in my personal collection, gently washed, mended and stored. But I've no more room for things that are too pretty to wear, so I am offering them to you!

20s handmade actual burlesque dancer outfit. The outfit include a bra and tap pant made out of pink and teal silk, lined in white cotton. The bra top wouldn't cover much but the front of the bust (but that was the point!) and has pink cotton ribbons to tie it halter style around the neck and in the back. The bottoms cover just the front and the bum area. The side are completely open and are closed with two ribbons on either side. So, the entire hip and thigh would be exposed. The ribbons on the bottoms are not original. The original silk ribbons had deteriorated and I replaced them with new nylon ribbons. That is the only alteration or mend I have made to this set.

They were handmade by the dancer herself, most likely improvised and do not follow a pattern. They feature a combination of machine and hand stitches and on the inside there is evidence of previous alterations.

Size on tag: no tag, handmade
Fits like: Due to the ribbons, this outfit can probably accommodate a range of sizes from XS - M, but would best fit a size S.
Bust: the bra is 11 in long as it was meant to just cover the front, but with the ribbons it can fit up to a 38 in. bust, no larger than a B cup comfortably with room to tie it.
Length (from top of bustline, not including straps): 6 in.
Tap Pant
Waist: Could comfortably be tied anywhere between a 24-28 in waist.
Hips: Could comfortably be tied anywhere between a 34-38 in hip.
Rise: 11 in.
Material: Rayon

Condition: Excellent. This outfit is in great shape for it's age and is definitely sturdy enough to wear, if you should choose to do so! It has been hand washed, but there might still be slight discoloration due to age.
