Plaid and Yellow Dance Costume
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
This product is unavailable
Here we have a darling 4 piece dance costume / set from the estate of a former dancer.
This colorful set includes a mini dance dress, fitted, fingerless gloves, and matching bonnet.
The mini dress is sleeveless with yellow net ruching along the bust, with a fitted chest and waist. The dress has a partially pleated ultra-mini skirt.
The gloves slide on and hit a few inches above the elbow, with pointed fabric that lays across the top of each hand. The very uppermost part of the gloves are decorated with yellow net tulle that matches the detail at the bust.
The bonnet is shaped from a piece of pliable card-stock-like material, that can be worn as a bonnet or ruff / collar. It is covered with the same plaid fabric as the main mini dress and also features yellow ruffles and a dark blue tie ribbon.
The set 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.
