Thrifted yesterday this antique fencing costume. The mask you find quite often not the costume and it fits me perfectly. Buttons are out of bone, the fabric is heavy cotton. It was used and has some holes from the fights. The right arm of the jacket has a double lining, for better protection, as well is the heart area doubled. The waist band and the collar is very thick. The back seams are with baleine.
The costume I would date around 1900.
Want to go to a costume party with this and highheels!
