Dancer's costume designed for an Earl Carroll Vanities showgirl for the finale of a show, or a show titled "Finale". The costume consists of what appears to be a skin-toned bodice with an off-the-shoulder cape collar with swirling black trim. Similar black trim swirls around the hips, which connects the bodice piece to a multi-tiered floor-length white skirt with black dots of various sizes. The costume is paired with opera-length black gloves.
