Coral Rhinestone Halter Dance Costume
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
This product is unavailable
Here we have a coral / salmon pink dance costume from the estate of a former dancer / performer.
The costume is a vibrant shade of orange-pink, with a halter neck, empire waist and fitted bodice and waist. The bust of the costume is embellished with clear, sparkling, prong-set rhinestones.
The costume has a drop-waist with a series of ruffles creating the attached tutu. As seen from the photos, the mini skirt is formed by a double layer of ruffles.
The set is one piece with sewn in shorts. lined around the leg holes in elastic (amazingly these still retain their stretch).
The piece is partially lined with cotton and does have a considerable amount of seam allowance, should you want to let it out. Please see the pictures of this (and feel free to message us for exact seam allowance measurements).
The costume is hand / home made, as are all of the items from her collection.
We bought out the entire contents of a former dancer and this came from her vast collection of performance pieces. Check out our other listings and check back in the next few days as we are adding more daily.
Headdress is for styling purposes only and is not included.
