Shades of the old South! You will step back in time every time you wear this elegant Civil War inspired gown. This gown has all the right details. The fitted bodice features a high neckline with a dropped shoulder seam above double puffed sleeves. The bodice front is shaped by four darts and the closure is in the front with covered buttons. The back bodice has a center back piece and 2 side back panels. The very full skirt is gathered smoothly into the bodice at the waistline. Perhaps the best part is the fabric; shimmering dupioni in your color choice means that this gown will show off beautifully in any light. Polyester dupioni - please dry clean. Proudly designed and made by Recollections in America! Emily completes her look with gloves, hat, earrings, and a ruffled hoop and they are all available priced separately. Mint julep anyone?

Q: Is there any chance you might make this in a light weight cotton? A delicate print, or a solid color with black trim above the skirt hem and on the sleeves would be nice, especially in Robin's egg blue.
A: Yes! We can make the dress in a solid cotton! The price remains the same but would be non-returnable/exchangeable. We offer a baby blue and a beautiful Dresden blue.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
