Early 1890's Wrapper Dress

From the seller:

Late 1800's through early 1900's wrapper dress is made out of black cotton with a small geometric print in white. Turn down point collar has a front and back yoke with ruffle trim. Long sleeves taper at cuffs. Wide ruffle at hem. Center front opening is missing all closures. Unlined except for in bodice, which has tan calico lining.

CONDITION: Very good with a few small tears in the bottom ruffle as well as in the ruffle on the back yoke. There is a 2.5" tear at the left underarm. All garments are cleaned unless otherwise noted. Additional photographs available upon request.
COLOR: Black & White
MEASUREMENTS: Please compare the measurements listed below to a garment that fits you well. These measurements were taken with the garment lying flat, and when appropriate, doubled to calculate the circumference.

Bust: 30"
Waist: 34"
Hips: Open
Across Shoulders: 12"
Sleeve Length: 22"
Center Back Length: 51"

From Me:

The way the back is pleated makes me think this is earlier rather than later 1890's.
