Christina Victorian Ball Gown

    Christina Victorian Ball Gown

    Code: 150656-150462

    While we call this a Victorian gown, it has many elements from the Civil War era, and could serve equally well to represent either period. You get to select which shimmering shade of taffeta to make up the bodice and attached overskirt. The closely fitted boned bodice features an off-the-shoulder neckline trimmed out with ruffled lace and grosgrain bows similar to the "Bertha" collar so popular on Civil War ball gowns. The attached overskirt is generously gathered then trimmed out with a deep ruffle and accented all around with large bows made up in black grosgrain ribbon. Shirring under each bow causes the hemline of the overskirt to fall into a graceful scalloped effect. The very full black taffeta underskirt has a flounce at the hemline and several rows of vertical "falls" of black lace at the center front. The skirt has a comfortable elastic waist. Made up in acetate taffeta. Please dry clean only. Recollections clothing is proudly made in America. Liesa completes her ensemble by wearing a hoop under the skirt, and then adds gloves, jewelry, and boots. All are available priced separately.

    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.
