    Amazing 1960s paper dress featuring the "Baby Ruth" logo (and ingredients)
    Paper clothing, in the form of women's dresses made from disposable cellulose fabric, was a short-lived fashion novelty item in the 1960s United States.
    At the height of demand, Mars Hosiery made 100,000 dresses a week.
    By 1968, paper clothing had disappeared from the market.

    Anyone know what it's worth?

      Have no idea what it's worth, but it's pretty cool! I grew up in the sixties in Southern California- pretty much the US capital of hip fashion trends at the time, and I never once saw anyone wear a paper dress! I guess the paper dress didn't really catch on in my circle, but it is certainly quite a novelty worth collecting!

      I have seen the Cambelles soup dress for sale for as little as $200.00 and as much as $1200.00, these were asking prices I don't know if they ever sold them. Cool dress though!
