•Highlights: scarce matched set made for the western export market; massive balloon sleeve top with diamond-quilted satin bib + beaded ties; jet glass button cuffs; matching balloon trousers (referred to as "harem" style back in the day); enticing front open slits down each leg -- I'm pricing this complete set the same as a single comp pair of the pants listed with no blouse, that's how hard they are to find still matched

•Colors: black with gold metallic braid + rainbow metallic Lurex woven throughout 

•Fabric(s): rayon gauze

•Lined: no and is semi-sheer

•Closures: pulls on

•Designer/Labels: RN number traces to CRJ Imports; made in India label

All accessories (belts, jewelry, crinolines, pins, etc.) are for style inspiration only unless indicated.
