    Wisteria Regency Era Dress

    Code: 130207

    Reminiscent of the gowns worn in the Regency era, this lovely gown will transport you into the world of Pride and Prejudice or any of Jane Austen's lovely books. Our romantic high-waisted gown has a high neck and long sleeves. The dress features a front covered button closure, and the long sleeves are shirred at the cuff and extended to cover the hand. The waistband is elasticized for a comfortable fit. Made up in 100% cotton in your choice of one of our lovely prints. Machine or hand wash gently in cold water. Made in America by Recollections. Alicia is also wearing a petticoat, boots, earrings, and she carries a reticule - all are available priced separately. Romantic and comfortable too!

    4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 What a dress!, 7.8.2014
    Reviewer: Agatha K (Helsinki, Uusimaa)

    The dress arrived today. I was a bit hesitant to try it as I have not lost all the baby weight I accumulated. However, this dress is very forgiving to the womanly figure. It drops nicely, no bumps or lumps in sight. The sleeves are beautiful yet practical. Considering buying the same dress with a different pattern!


    Q: Please let me know:1. the length of the dress in size L.2. If you will shorten the length for me (I am quite short).3. Shipping costs to Switzerland.Thanks much,S

    A: The length of the dress is approximately 40 inches from waist to hem. This is a higher waist item, and that is factored in. We can alter the length for a $20.00 fee, and it will make the item non-returnable/exchangeable. Shipping costs are based on the amount ordered and do not include any custom and duty taxes you will incur. The shipping costs can be viewed when you order online and choose "shipping to another location other than US".

    Q: Hello,,,Is the fabric that the model wears available?Thank you,Best regards,

    A: No, the fabric shown is no longer available. Our calico fabrics are always changing, and you will have to choose from the swatches shown with the item.

    Q: Dear sir/mrsKindly note that am pregnant and I want to make sure what size to take whereby my bust is 42 and my waist is 42 and I require the height waist model Code: 130207Thank you and best regards

    A: The size XL finishes at bust 49 and waist 41, the XXL finishes at bust 53 and waist 44.5. The length from the natural waist to hem is 40 inches.

    Q: The length from the NATURAL WAIST to hem is 40 inches.: The length of the dress is approximately 40 inches from waist to hem. THIS IS A HIGHER WAIST ITEM, and that is factored inThis is confusing: 40" from natural waist, or 40" from raised waist? I'm going to need longer length and don't understand how to measure for you to get the right length.

    A: Measure from waist to hem.

    Q: waist 39 but bust is 42. Given that there's boning in the bodice and you said something about how it should be fitted smaller, what size do ai order? Also height from natural waist to top of foot is 40"

    A: There is no boning in this dress. The length should be fine for you. The size Medium finishes at bust 44, the large is bust 48.

    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.
