We found our Infant & Toddler Girls Shadow Buttery-Soft Viscose Made from Eucalyptus Twirl Dress makes for the perfect Halloween costume for many reasons. First, the high-quality, lightweight, breathable, durable fabric with the perfect amount of stretch will work perfectly in tandem for trick or treating. Second, this extremely soft solid charcoal twirl dress is made for—you guessed it—twirling. And third, we can think of at least four different costume ideas using this black dress.
