Gowns, resembling this one, were fashionable all through the period of the Civil War. Worn mainly in the evening, these gowns were especially popular to women of the time. This beautiful, off-the shoulder calico gown has a full skirt attached to the bodice which has a shallow point at center front. The gown is adorned in lace trim around the neckline and the double-poufed sleeve. 100% cotton calico. Hand wash gently or Dry clean. The model is also wearing a choker and 4-boned hoop, which are priced separately. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
