Victorian Civil War Styled Ball Gown

    Victorian Civil War Styled Ball Gown

    Code: 70201-2

    Victorian ball gowns had a style that was all their own. The fashion of the time period was constantly changing, and several designs emerged and took hold. This elegant off-the shoulder ball gown is similar to the style around the year 1855. This gown has fitted and boned bodice with off-the shoulder neckline shawl collar and full elbow length sleeves. The overskirt becomes progressively longer in the back, creating an eye-catching train. Trimmed in ruffled lace, it is shirred at intervals and finished with a beautiful satin bow and button trim. The underskirt, of cotton, is separate, and has an elastic waist for your added comfort. A striking, wide calico shirring finishes the hemline. Proudly made in the US by Recollections. Dry clean. Cotton with acetate satin bows. Liesa completes the look with a ruffled hoop, boots, jewelry, gloves and fan, and they 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.
