This is a one of a kind fancy! The dress was made for the yearly event Retrorama at the History Center in St. Paul, MN to be worn in a retro underwear inspired fashion show celebrating Munsingwear. This look includes a reversible dress, demi-bra and high-waisted bloomers. The outer shell of the dress is Easter egg green dupioni silk with a cotton ruffle, black empire waist band and large black carved button. The inside is a pink and red poppy floral print on a white background and waistband/button matching the outside. The seams are accentuated with black velvet ribbon. This same ribbon is places in three diagonal lines on the skirt and the bra. This dress is fully reversible (with with snaps; perfect for burlesque!), has a fun pointed hem and a full a-line skirt.
The cotton eyelet bra and pant set has only been worn by the burlesque model with undergarments underneath it. Once for the runway show, once for the shoot above, as well as for two television spots. The red underneath in the pictures in the model’s own bra (for modesty). The bra cuts fairly low so it’s great for pasties! The bloomers are high-waisted, a throw-back to the 1940s, and make the waist look just lovely! There are small zippers and 4 shiny black buttons on either side of the bloomers. The bra ties in front with a shiny poppy bow.
And all of this comes together with a matching kanashi headband!
