About Us

Are you planning to attend a special event, like a wedding, anniversary celebration, a themed party, or an historic re-enactment? Perhaps you are simply a romantic at heart, and love to wear lots of lace and long skirts. Whatever your clothing preference, you are sure to fall in love with the elegant, vintage-inspired clothing Recollections offers.

Recollections' designs appeal to a wide variety of enthusiasts: in addition to those planning a wedding with that special timeless look, members of SASS, NCOWS, or those affiliated with Victorian or Edwardian era activities come back again and again to our shop. Many Recollections designs have been used for Civil War re-enactments, museum exhibits, costuming for film and stage productions, horse-drawn carriage tours, photography, clothing for the staff at historical sites, and ballroom dancing.

Recollections specializes in creating historic-styled clothing reminiscent of centuries past - everything from amazing antebellum ball gowns, vivid Victorian ensembles, elegant Edwardian fashions with fabulous hats, slinky roaring 20's styles, and swinging 50's inspired dresses. They even make stylish Steampunk wear for modern adventurers. Over the years, Recollections styles have been "coming forward in time" from their original Victorian and Edwardian offerings with new designs added to support the demand for "Downton Abbey" styles, the Roaring 20's, and most recently designs from the 50's. In this way Recollections continues to preserve the best of styles from our past, and make them available to you. Whatever era appeals to your romantic interest in clothing, Recollections proudly produces it here in America.

What size should I order?

Most people find that our sizing runs generously. If you are undecided with which size to order, it is best to order the smaller size, or give us a call to assist you (1-800-452-5925). You may also email us at with your measurements (bust and waist) and we can help you choose the nearest size.

An exception to the generous sizing is the type of ball gown that requires boning in the bodice and that supports a heavy skirt. Many times this style is also "off-the-shoulder" and requires a firm fit to stay up. These styles tend to not run as generously as most of our other garments because of this. But please, give us a call if you are uncertain.

In most cases you should take your bust and waist measurement to determine your size. Please wear the undergarments that you intend to wear when you do your measuring. For example, take your measurement over the type of brassiere or corset that you may be wearing.

Measure the fullest part of your bust around and the smallest part of your waist.
