Basque Dancers Dancing Skirt
Green Skirt that has a slit on the top that is sealed by a hook and button; the skirt is made of satin and has a very bright sheen; the top is a thin band of the same material and has on one side a slit that goes down for about a quarter of the skirt and allows the person to get into the skirt; the slit is enclosed by a small black metal button that is in the middle of the slit and by a small metal hook that is in the middle of the waistband; the side with the latch for the hook has the band extended a small bit from the edge of the slit so that the band can go behind itself; the bottom of the skirt has an edge that is very much like that of a pillowcase or a sheet with the edge just being a piece that has been doubled back behind and sewn together showing a seam on the outside; a few light stains are seen on the outside of the skirt and some minor wear can be seen; found in CS1 in a box by Jeff Washburn on 7/2/2009
