Teens Era Halloween Dress

From the seller:

Super rare and extremely awesome early 20th century Halloween dress. Fashioned in a sturdy and wearable black cotton with yellow-orange contrasting middy collar and cuffs. Paper black cat appliques adorn the collar back! Long sleeves are Edwardian in shape with gathers above the wrists. The dress body has rows of sewn down pleats and lots of fabric to fit a variety of sizes. Shown belted (belt not included) and unpinned on a medium sized dress form. Hidden hook and eyes down the front. Lovely flattering shape and a style that would be wearable as a dress and not just a costume.

Will fit a variety of sizes.
-Bust: up to 44"
-Waist: open
-Hip: open
-Length: 44"
-Shoulder: 16"
-Sleeve length: 23"

Condition: Excellent for its age. Very sturdy and wearable. The appliques show wear and breaks, but this is normal for any antique halloween costume. Some discoloration spots on the cuffs.

From Me:

Again, anything over 50 years old isn't "very wearable". Just like us, fabric gets old. It just doesn't show it quite as visibly until you try and make the fabric move.

Based on the neckline and sleeves, the style is probably 1910's.
