This fabulous Victorian power suit is a must have! The asymmetrical front closure on the twill jacket and braid detail are so very Victorian and period-correct. A small black high collar trimmed in gimp braid, matching black deep cuffs and long full pleated peplum - ample enough to accommodate a bustle - complete this romantic look. Faceted buttons adorn the cuffs and braid detail on the jacket front. The black twill 3-gore skirt features a comfortable elastic waist. Dry clean only. Priced separately: boots, parasol,crinoline, jewelry, gloves, and hat. You will discover yourself looking for excuses to wear this lovely outfit. Recollections clothing is made in America.

Q: HI,I purchased this ensemble some time ago and loved it. Unfortunatley my dog made a mess of the skirt and i now need to purchase a new one. Is the skirt sold by itself and if so could you please direct me to which one it is under the individual items because I don't seem to be able to find it. Many thanks,Sam
A: The item you are referring to is code: W103 sold separately for $69.95
Q: I'm ordering the tempest suit and I can't seem to find the over skirt .. Is it included or could you tell me where I can find it?
A: The item is available for sale for 35.95. You would have to call us to order that piece.
Q: Do you need to wear a corset with the jacket, or is it cut to wear without? I need something to wear while singing & have to be able to breathe!
A: No you do not need to wear a corset.
Q: Does the Tempest suit run big, small or true to size?
A: Our items tend to run generous, but this is a fitted jacket. Order the size you normally wear and send a bust and waist measurement to ensure a proper fit.

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 email@example.com 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.
