Theater costume for music-hall performer May Moore Duprez circa 1910. Materials: Sequins and net on a cotton backing. Every millimeter is encrusted with sequins, each one painstakingly sewn on by hand, and the costume would have shone and sparkled under the stage lights. As she moved the skirt, Duprez's legs would have been revealed surrounded by a froth of underskirts in the finest chiffon, which would also have helped cushion her legs against the weight of the sequined skirt.
