Persephone Civil War Gown

    Persephone Civil War Gown

    Code: 121007

    You will have to decide which fabulous print to have this lovely antebellum-inspired gown made up in! With shirred cotton sleeves, center front bodice, and skirt bottom, this Civil War era gown is ever-so-feminine without being too frilly. The bodice features a wide, face-framing neckline, shirred sleeves that are cuffed just below the elbow and trimmed in lace, and a deep V at the waistline. The very full skirt is gathered to the bodice at the waist. Made up in crisp 100% cotton. Please hand or machine wash in cold on gentle cycle, then hang to dry or tumble dry on low setting. Proudly made in America by Recollections. Korynn also wears jewelry, an ruffled hoop, boots and gloves. She also carries a parasol - all are available priced separately. Perfect for that special outing!

    Reviewer: Bianca (Lanaken, Limburg)

    I so love it!! The dress is very beautiful. I have it in audery combined with black and it is so so lovely. It looks in real not so heavy as on the site, that's why I have been afraid to order it but it looks fantastic. It also looks good with just bloomers, then it is perfect as a day dress.The fit is perfect. And don't fotget the lovely sleeves..I can't stop, I love it! Thank you Ladies!!!

    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.
