Description

Dancer's costume designed for an Earl Carroll Vanities showgirl. The costume consists of what appears to be a black wrap coat with cape sleeves worn over a floor-length multi-tiered white skirt with black dots. A small sketch on the bottom right side of the illustration is possibly a partial design for what the top of the ensemble looks like without the coat.
