Purple and Pink Lace Up Front Dance Costume
Brand Embers / Cinders Vintage
Here we have a hot pink, light pink and purple dance costume from the estate of a former dancer / performer.
The costume is a one piece with frilly attached tulle tutu.
The main portion of the costume is made of a hot pink satin with a purple ribbon faux lace-up detail on the front. A pastel pink inset is right under the purple ribbon. A bow punctuates the bottom portion of the lace-up ribbon.
The piece has a sweetheart neckline, with a purple tulle ruffle over each side of the bust.
The costume has a dropped waist with layers of purple and hot pink tulle forming a tutu. The tulle ruffles start longer on the top and become gradually smaller further down on the suit.
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).
Piece shows signs of wear and use as this was a performance piece. Seams along the bodice show signs of strain. (Please look closely at all pictures).
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.
