    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 perfection ,very figure flattering!, 6.21.2017
    Reviewer: B.A.M. L (Lanaken, Limburg)

    I have been looking at this ensemble for a few years!! because I was very afraid that it wouldn't suit my figure, but it is very flattering.I always order dresses with the v-shape bodice because the straight cut waistline looks not so flattering. I can recommed it! Perfect for the evening or colder weather. When you wear this you will be center of attention! Chapeau dear Ladies!

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fabulous bustle day dress, 4.10.2014
    Reviewer: Robert M. (North Charleston, SC)

    I was very much impressed when I took this dress from the box. It is very well made, fits my wife perfectly, and has the perfect 1880's bustle look. I am always amazed at the trimmings used and the high quality fabrics. I look forward to ordering more clothing from your company in the future !


    Q: I am very tall, 5'11

    A: We can shorten or lengthen for a 20.00 fee. This alteration will make the item nonreturnable/exchangeable. We do suggest you take a waist to floor measurement. This skirt finishes at 40 inches from waist to hem.

    Q: Are the wrist cuffs removable on the Marcella 1030-1032? Also do you offer materials other than the 8 prints shown and how often to you change them? It would be nice to see the models wearing the materials offered.

    A: No they are not removable. Our calico prints are always changing, and new ones are added as the choices get low. There is no specific timetable on the addition of new fabrics. At this time we do not have the option of seeing the models in the various prints.

    Q: If the dress is made in the Cornell Fabric will the lace and cuffs still be white or a different colour?

    A: The trim/lace will be ivory, unless otherwise specified by the customer.

    Q: Could this dress be worn with a bustle pad? If so, which one do you suggest (you offer different sizes).

    A: Yes, we recommend item 1004. Drawstring waist, one size fits all.

    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.
