*Period : Vintage 1930's
*Style :  vintage Costume
*Fabric :  ?
*Color : Gold/ Ivory (from age)
*Provenance : estate of a Chicago entertainer

*Size :  - Actual measurements below...

DESCRIPTION:

*I have several costumes from the estate of a Chicagoan who started entertaining as a child way back in the 1933 Chicago World's Fair, she went on to be a USO singer/dancer in WWII, married another singer, and then back to Chicago on Television in Polka Party on WGN TV. Her family was kind enough to include photo copies of her wearing the costumes that will be included in the listings and I also have a copy of the article about her from a Chicago newspaper. I will also be listing her personal scrapbook that has photos and newspaper articles, one article describes how she had to parachute out of an airplane in distress during WWII!!

This is a costume I'm guessing she wore in the 1930's. Consists of a front closure skirt that had a gold sparkle/glitter exterior and ruffles on the inside, also has lace ruffle panties and a flower piece that from the photo seems to be worn on the head. I did not find the blouse or top.  Can't you just imagine this costume worn on stage in the World's fair and how excited she must have been! Includes a photo copy of Elaine wearing the costume (see below). The glitter is worn off on much of skirt, not sure how it was put on but glue may have been used as the fabric is a bit stiff, there are a couple blue spots on skirt and 2 brownish stains. Panties are soiled color and netting on ruffles also worn quite a bit. Flowers are greyish/soiled but still holding together, I believe made of fabric. Nice piece of vintage Chicago costume history!
