belt (costume accessory)
Date1917 – 1925
A tan dupioni silk belt or waistband that is part of a suit. Measures 1 3/4 " wide. Completely separate from the suit it matches, the belt has a bound buttonhole and a self-fabric button. Its fabric is slightly different from the suit's skirt, and its measurement is much smaller than the skirt's waistband, suggesting that it perhaps belonged to an earlier and smaller skirt.
