Print gowns were admired by women of the 1800's because of their attention to style. This mid-1800's gown was inspired by a gown worn by Mary Todd Lincoln. This breathtaking, off-the shoulder dress has a shawl calico collar trimmed in lace. A fabric and lace rosette trims the center front. This gown is a must for any woman who has a taste for fashion. This gown was worn by one of the characters in Comedy Central's "Another Period". Can be hand washed but dry cleaning is advised. 100% cotton calico, polyester lace. Priced separately is the 4-boned hoop skirt worn underneath, which gives the silhouette of the era. Designed and made proudly by Recollections in America!

Q: How long is the dress waist to floor with the hoop foot hoop skirt. Will a six foot hoop skirt fit to shorten the length. I am 5 .feet tall and looking to see if the dress will work for me
A: The length from waist to hem is approximately 41-42 inches as it can accommodate a hoop. We suggest taking a waist to floor measurement with the shoes you will be wearing. If wearing a hoop with the dress, it will take the length up 1-2 inches depending on the hoop.
Q: why is the color of the dress shown usually not on the list of colors to choose?
A: Our calico fabric are always changing.

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.
