Vintage childs fancy dress costume Wild West Cowboy girl FOR DISPLAY ONLY


Vintage children's dressing-up top - suitable for display purposes only. Made around 1960 - late 1950s or early 1960s. Presumably made as part of a home-made cowboy (or cowgirl) style "Wild West" outfit, and fringed. It looks as if it has been cobbled together for a fancy dress party or stage costume, out of old clothes. It consists of a child's plaid/check long-sleeved shirt, which has been cut right down the middle, and the buttons have been replaced by a single stud fastening at the neck. Then it has been embellished with a red linen collar, fringed black velvet waistcoat fronts, and red fringed velvet cuffs.
The result is a spectacular top for a cowgirl or cowboy outfit, which can be changed quickly and easily.(Anyone who has organised costume changes at a school play or panto, will appreciate the advantages of this!)

Please note: this clothing does NOT meet modern safety standards, and is not suitable for children to wear, because of the fringe (choking hazard).
It is being sold PURELY for nostalgic/display purposes, such as dressing a display dummy or doll or teddy bear.

Size: Not marked Actual garment measurements:
Chest........24 inches (81 cm)
Length, shoulder to hem.......15 inches (38 cm).
Condition:
Vintage home-made fancy dress top, several decades old, and in good display condition, but not suitable to wear. There is some discolouration/water spotting on the black "waistcoat". The red "velvet" cuffs have stiffened and creased over time. The fringing is pulled and tatty in places.
Please note: this is a vintage waistcoat. It does NOT comply with modern safety standards for children's clothes, and should not be worn. It might be suitable for a nostalgic display, or for dressing dolls/teddy bears etc.
