This has to be one of the most unique, amazingly and painstakingly made costumes that I have ever seen. We adore cirque style here at Fab Gabs, and this rare piece has it in spades.

All hand crocheted with black cotton that is woven with red tinsel, this piece is truly one of a kind, and will wow them on stage! Longer black tinsel edges the straps and bust, trims the center of the bodice, and bands the skirt. The dress closes with fifteen buttons up the center front - do you do burlesque? The anticipation would be palpable as you slowly undo them all. One of my favorite features are the "corners" of more open weave on the sides of the bodice, allowing your skin to peek thorugh. And we suggest a bustier style bra with the piece - the bust is as low as it could possibly be. The skirt is a full circle, amazing for dancing. I know you'll never see another piece just like this. It is MARVELOUS.


Bust: 26"-34"
Waist: 22"-36"
Hips: 60"
Length: 37"

Condition: Very Good
I have been over this piece with a fine tooth comb - I am pleased to say that it truly is in very good condition. Upon close inspection, one can see slightly larger holes at some of the "joints" where elements of the piece were brought together, but this is original, and a natural result of being hand made. I find no issues to note. Ready to wear. Go knock 'em dead!
