  • $220.00
    Unit price per 

Fabulous vintage costume, probably made in the 40s or 50s as a Latin dance costume. This works for so many characters such as Carmen Miranda, or as a unique Burlesque costume. The bolero top is one piece with a gold “bra” that ties in front. It has outrageous sleeves that are ruffled layers trimmed in red, white and black dingle balls and polka dot bows (added more recently). The skirt wraps in front with a wide polka dot waist tie and falls in layers of red, gold and black satin trimmed in dingle balls. There is a piece of black trim included to pin across the back to keep the heavy sleeves up.
Photographed with black ruffled panties, not included but available. You could also layer it over black leggings or a petticoat.

Size: Small

Top: taken tied tight
Bust - 35”

Skirt: Depends how it’s tied:
Waist - 25”-30”
Length - 37”

Label: None
Condition: This is a very old costume and has signs of wear. The only place to note is a thinning in the bolero near the shoulder. It is very sturdy and quite fabulous in a way that is enhanced by its’ age.
