    Bernardina Fancy Ball Gown

    Code: 150461-2

    Our 18th century styled ball gown is made up in rich dupioni and taffeta. The overdress has a closely fitted bodice with a square neckline and a deep "V" at the waist front. Dupioni ruching details the neckline. The sleeves have a flattering fullness at the shoulder, and are trimmed out with more ruching at the elbow. A gathered asymmetrical pouf trimmed in lace finishes the sleeve. The bodice front features a black taffeta panel that is trimmed in plush black velvet ribbon and black rose Venice lace. The skirt of the overdress is split in the middle and bustled up at the sides and back. The separate underskirt of black taffeta has a flounce at the hemline and several rows of vertical lace at the center front. The underskirt has a comfortable elastic waist. Please dry clean only. Recollections clothing is proudly made in America. Liesa finishes her look with jewelry, gloves, and an extra full crinoline - all are available priced separately. Just perfect!

    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.
