    Throughout the Victorian period, petticoats were worn by women to help create the fashionable shape of the time. One of the most prominent looks of the Victorian Era was the hoop skirt look, which featured a small waist and a full skirt. This look can be seen in Victorian magazines and modern costumes. This is especially common in historical pieces and reenactments of the Civil War. While petticoats weren't necessarily practical during wartime, women still wore them in everyday dress.


    This wonderful Civil War petticoat is an admirable addition to your wardrobe for its versatility. This adaptable skirt can be worn as a skirt by itself or as a rustling taffeta petticoat under your gowns to add fullness. With four gores, there is ample space to wear a crinoline or a hoop underneath. A taffeta flounce finishes the hem. You should always dry clean your Civil War petticoat, since it is made of acetate taffeta. This Civil War petticoat was designed and made proudly by Recollections in America!

    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 sales@recollections.biz 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.
