Description of One Beautiful Evening
Magnificent leo costume in gray, with gold and gray/silver applique. Can be used for lyrical, contemporary, open dances. Over 10 gross of rhinestones! Rhinestones are Crystal Argent SS16, Crystal SS20, and Crystal Lagoon in both SS20 & SS34. Beautiful! The costume includes an applique that can be added to the costume or used as a headdress.
It is intended for a long torso with the center back vertical strap measuring 12.25 inches, including the collar, the measurement is 14″, which can be shortened or lengthened at the panty waist, possible vertical strap extension is 1.5 inches, horizontal straps @ 3″ each. Our model Mademoiselle Ana, in the middle of the street, has measurements of 29-25.5-30.5 and a girth of 52. The model in the garden has the measurements of 29.5 25.5 32 with girth at 52. The mannequin that the costume is displayed on has the following measurements: 30-27-33, and girth is 50 inches, which is the equivalent to a child large. Very high quality 4-way stretch lends to the costume fitting over several sizes. Keep in mind that when bust, waist, and hip measurements on your dancer is less than 30-27-33, girth fit will increase.
We like when the costume base looks taut or smooth against the skin and not just on our mannequin. There is some bulk showing on the photos where the straps feed into the top of the panty. This is intentional excess should you require adjustments of the straps. If you do not sew and do not have a seamstress, please consider ordering a custom costume specific to your dancer’s measurements. If you live in the vicinity, we would be happy to make adjustments, if needed OR if you pay for shipping, we’ll be happy to video chat with you regarding your adjustments, ship back for needed adjustments, indicated with safety pins.
Costume can easily be let out or taken in:
Tightening of the neckline: 2 buttons
Horizontal back strap has ample “extra” should you need to expand the back.
Vertical back strap can easily be expanded or taken in at the pant waist line, easy peasy!
Additionally, sash can easily be removed.
