My mother gave me a bag of fancy dress clothes to go through to see whether I wanted to keep any of them. Among others, there was a kid's cat costume, a lovely duck egg blue late '40s dress and short cape, a '20s number and this.
I felt complete personal humiliation was a small price to pay to share this gem with the world.
My mother wore this little number in all seriousness, circa 1980. Note the sci fi style padded rings around the shoulders.
