Teens Era Swimsuit with accessories!

From the seller:

This vintage Edwardian era ladies bathing costume black cotton swimsuit, stockings and shoes date from 1910. Included in the lot is a black lustrous mercerized cotton swimsuit dress with decorative white stitching, an attached sash belt, patch pockets on skirt, sleeveless with underarm discreet panels, shoulder snaps and is missing the bloomers from underneath. The swimsuit dress is loose fitting, measuring 37 inches long, with 42 inch hips, a 36 inch waist and 36 inch bust. There are unworn black mercerized cotton knit thigh high bathing swim stockings socks, measuring 27 inches long, with a 9 1/2 inch long foot. Also included are a pair of black cotton canvas bathing swim shoes ballet slipper style, with white trim piping, lacing and soft canvas bottom soles. The shoes measure 9 1/2 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide and have two small repair mends on the sides (see close-up). This retro antique ladies "bathing beauty" costume outfit is truly a rare and wonderful find!

From Me:

OMG! DA SHOES!!!!!!!! I'm thinking this is closer to the later end of the teens era to the point it might have been early 1920's -particularly with those measurements. However, most likely from the mid to late teens era.
